Hydrilla at Walden/Sawhill

Post By: Mike V.      Posted: 4/12/2016 1:10:28 PM     Points: 487    
Looking to hit both sets of ponds in a couple of hours and was curious on how thick the hydrilla is right now. I know in the summer it blooms everywhere and can make it annoying, but it's not quite that time yet. In a lot of the other places I've been fishing lately, the algae is steadily growing, but I didn't know if hydrilla grew as fast as algae. Maybe I will just have to see for myself. I'm just trying to figure out what gear I should bring, because I don't want to go out with my worm and jig rod and need my beefstick

Spotted the transplant. We don't have hydrilla in CO yet (thank God)

Sawmill sure is thick with other plants, mostly native coontail and native watermilfoils.

Sawmill is warm, shallow, and nutrient rich so all plant and algal material grows quickly, that said most places don't get choked with weeds till at least July. Sawmill also has a lot of carp which can slow weed growth.

I honestly thought it was Hydrilla, thanks for that correction.
