Summer is officially here.  The area lakes are exceptionally clear considering all the rain we have had this year.  Pickerel Lake is 20+ feet and Big Cormorant Lake has at least 20 foot visibility.  I heard that Paul Lake, Lake Six and Seven are also looking good for visibility.
The water temperatures are in the low 70 degrees. 
Last weekend 5 of us ventured out to Lake Sakakawea to spear game fish.  We did not see many game fish that we could spear so on Sunday morning we loaded up and traveled back to Spiritwood Lake north of Jamestown to check out the lake and to see how spearing would be there.  The lake is considered to be the clearest lake in North Dakota.  When we arrived we found out the lake had been in a heavy bloom and so the visibility was bad until we got below 12 and it then cleared up quite well.  Divers did see smallmouth bass but we did not see another game fish.  Those going on the trip were Jay Jensen, Chris Winter, Rick Schmidt, Charlie Blixt and Seal.  Here are some pictures of the divers at Spiritwood Lake. We hope to make another trip out there sometime this summer.
