    Tomorrow I’m taking the boat out for the first time this year but just trying to decide on where to go, I’m from Altoona and thought about Little River, Red Rock (ice out yet?? ) Three Mile, Twelve Mile or any other lake in this general area. The early bite can be tough but I’m going crazy and can’t wait to get out…..
    Thanks

    Remember 3 Mile was drained a year and half ago, wouldn’t go there.

    Why not the Des Moines river?

    Caught a lot walleye In 12-14.5″ range last fall at three mile.

    Been out few days this last week dragging jigs near main roadbed picking some up. Marking some fish 10-15′ down guessing crappies

    Thanks for the replies guys, I didn’t get out today but will soon with a report.
    How much water does 3 mile have?? I knew they drained it a while back but didn’t know it was fishable by boat yet??
    Thanks
