I see by the latest weather that there is a thunderstorm hitting Orr right now. Bring on the rain and get that pesky ice off the lake! We’re all getting ready for Walleye fishing opener which will be early this year on May 10th. Should be a good start to the season with high water and lots of flowage coming into the lake from the rivers.
Spring migrant reports from the Pelican River include Ospreys, Swans, Loons and lots of waterfowl. They are just waiting for the lakes to be ice free and tend to get stacked up in great concentrations in open water areas. It’s a great time to scan these open water areas for rarities. I heard of a sighting of a Pacific Loon in southern Minnesota – so keep your eyes open and check every bird – you never know what will turn up. Spring is a great time of the year in Crane Lake!
