NORTHERN MINNESOTA REPORT -A week ago I received the following letter from Ray La Montague of the Burntside Lodge at Ely, "I was down .to "the Burntside river last night trying to seo if the walleyes were running, and they have started. Not too many, but they should be at the peak toward the end of the week. These fish are from Shagawa as Burnlside River connects . that lake with Burntside -Lake. Difference in elevation is -about 10 feet. The spawning rivers and other beds for the Burntside fish are all on the north and west side of the lake and as the ice on Burntside still covers .the lake except for .the bays_ and the shallow reefs it is not possible to find out it they are running, " Burntside iSj/always the last laker to freezes S! 8 ^-^? ??"?* Lake cemetery5|^n tlfie^all and the last lake to open up in this area. With this condition I expect good walleye fishing opening weekend. Of course, the lake trout will be hitting as soon as the ice is out and they will be near the surface, which means using regular tackle and not the copper lines. The lake level is down due to the lack of rain this spring and also the small snow fall the past winter. QUESTION: What has happened on the 15 lake" "bill* — haven't seen anything on it?

DIRTY DAY — On Tuesday, April 28, Don Forsberg and I made a trip down to Wabasha and back. Our return .trip from Cannon Falls to Lakeville was one, I'll never forget. The 30 mile an-hour ( wind was blowing precious Minnesota top soil across the highway to such an extent that it blotted out the sun. There was..a. stretch of a quarter ^of a mile when wj; couldn't see* a foot in^ront of the car.' Of course the lack of snow and rain was the major factor for this condition, but the drainage of swamp and marsh lands also plays its part in this sad waste.
