There is water in Seaman, more each day. Just don't know if there are any fish, I'd love to hear a report.

I haven't fished it, I know they dropped the lake and had water flowing through for a week at most. I heard from Dwayne at Betty's that they dredged it, but a reliable person that works for the city said that they dropped the lake, and didn't have the equipment to pull up the trees and crap, so they just filled it back up. Amazing foresight by government employees once again hey.

Walked up there today on a family hike. I do not have plans to fish it until the dam gates are fixed, since I saw it drained last summer. Water level is about 20 ft low from usual. It has dropped about 2' from when it froze this year. Now there is broken ice about 10-20 ft from shore with open water and thin ice in this edge area. With the low level of water, I wonder if they are planning repairs this spring. Anyway, forget it for a couple of years.

okay, so I have one important question. if they drained it and killed a large amt of perch, do you think that the trout would die by being forced to live in a river? I don't think they would, but if they eat perch as a base along w/ many a crawdad, don't you think there may be good trout and low forage? Thus hungry fish. I am going to try it at some point and I really haven't heard from anyone who has. I don't know if they will have safe ice unless it gets extremely cold so it may have to wait til spring

Troutdog. After they drained it and starting refilling this past summer/fall, I did another hike up there. There was a fishkill of all the species, perch, suckers, and brown trout (some rainbows, too) - not a minor one. Sure some of each survived but we are talking about reducing say 500 acres to less than 1 acre of water and back again. My opinion is that it wasn't a great fishery to start with but it will take a while for even the highly prolific perch to regain their numbers there. It is still a scenic walk.

Hey dog have you ever tried to fix something and you needed to use plan B?
Most "G" employees are just hard working public servants.
Seaman wasn't dredged, the gates needed some work and they are now fixed.

I don't know this to be true. I understood that it was drained and they did not have the equipment to fix the problem, so they refilled to try another time. Do you have information on this that you can share?
