  1. Do you know if smelt are running now? Or if the smelt are harvested from the Lake?

    1. Also -- what is happening in Chisago Lakes? Sounds interesting.

          Chisago City Fire Dept. has an annual smelt fry. I think this year's is on Saturday April 30. (not "this Saturday" from orig. post).

            The date in your first post is too early and in your last post it's too late.

            From the city newsletter:

            The Chisago City Fire Department invites you to attend their annual
            smelt fry on FRIDAY, April 30, 2010, beginning at 4:00 p.m. This event is
            held at the Chisago City Community Center, 10825 Lake Boulevard in
            Chisago City. Tickets can be purchased at local businesses, Chisago
            City Hall, or at the event.

              mmmm....Smelt. It may be time to drive up the shore. I'm sure the Green door is having a smelt fry.
