Default Re: Spruce Run Closed??

Any update on this situation? I have Monday off and was planning to take the boat out on spruce run but wondering if I should call an audible and head somewhere else. Do these algae blooms tend to impact fishing? I already get skunked enough as it is a SR so if the fishing is going to be even tougher than normal I think I will just head to the south branch for smallies.

Boat ramps are open, my girlfriend launched her work boat there earlier in the week. Just swimming is prohibited.

I don't have any experience with fishing a harmful bloom, but Chrisper said "last time this happened on another lake the fishing sucked..."

Might be a good idea to call an audible, maybe bring the boat to another nearby lake or reservoir? Or like you said, theres always the smallies in the south branch. Good luck wherever you go!

i mean there are tons of variables that could've effected us that day, but i'd go somewhere else. We know the lake we fished very well and almost never got skunked there, til that day we fished it with the algae bloom fiasco haha

Thatís all I need to hear. Thanks! I keep my boat at Spruce Run so that is obviously the default but Merrill Creek isnít far and now seems like a more promising option. If MC fails me I always have the usual pre and post south branch stops.

It's fine. Just dont swim in the water or eat the fish until the bloom passes. I've exposed my hands/arms to the water and no ill effects...yet lol
