Water Clarity Reports for Lake Winnebago 2-5-2013

Only 4 more days until the start of the 2013 Sturgeon Spear Fishery, and trust me DNR Logowhen I say that it will be here before you know it.  Our staff was out yesterday checking water clarity at a few locations along the East Shore of Lake Winnebago, and overall clarity is down from what we had experienced over the last few years.  We decided to just check conditions along the East shore because better ice conditions are present on that side of the lake.  Hopefully water clarity will increase as the season goes on, but for now the current water clarity readings that we observed are shown below:
 
Sturgeon Mikey Galligan175Fisherman’s Road: ½ Mile out = 6’ of water clarity
                       1 Mile out = 7’ of water clarity
                       2 Miles out = 8’ of water clarity
Brothertown: ½ Mile out = 0’ of water clarity
                     1 Mile out = 8’ of water clarity
                     2 Miles out = 7.5’ of water clarity
Stockbridge: 1 Mile out = 9.5’ of water clarity
                  2 Miles out = 9.5’ of water clarity
