So I made my way out to the fish salvage today and notice a few folks snagging and posted up asking if you can snag durnig a fish salvage and got a reply no,So I call OGT and let them know what was happening....
On my way home I had gotten a return phone call....
I was told that because this is a shallow lake and the water is getting drained quick they want folks to "stock there freezer"ANY way you can get fish out do it...multi multi rods(as many as you can handle),nets,snagging, jusr CAN NOT electic shock,poison,or blow them up........feel free to call the "local ranger" out there he is a super nice guy and really helpful(forgot his name)...(719)940-3588...make that 2-2/12 hour drive and help them out and stock your freezzzzzzers(lol)

And yes (DAVE) you are correct,and sorry for the folks that I called on today.......
I got a few decent size kittys myself today

That's good to know. Wish they would have let us do that at Bonny. What did you catch the cats on?

About how far is the water from the edge of the normal edge of the lake? Talked to a guy the other day, sounds like Blue lake is headed the same direction as Henry. Did you run over to Merrideth & see how much water is left in it?

Where there lots of people salvaging fish? Anyone out throwing cast nets?

The only real place to fish is off the rocks toward the right when you pull in,all other areas you will have to walk in soft mud,no one tossing nets out yet,I really dont think a whole lot know about everything about the salvage, most were fishin with 1 or 2 rods,but Im sure if they know "how" you can salvage fish from there a whole lot more would be doing it,I myself had 4 rods with me but only fished with 2 at a time,there was only about 20 people out fishin sunday
Merrideth seemed to have plenty of water in it
