Woke up this morning and the weather man said sunny today and rain the rest of the week. I felt sick so decided to call out of work. Amazingly I felt much better right afterwards so I took a trip to Hopkinton and fished Lake Maspenock. Put the Kayak in @ 9am and fished until 10:30. Not a nibble, I could not believe how low the water level was! I have been fishing here for only 2 or 3 season and never seen it like this. Check out the picks and water level marks, docks out of the water. Does anyone fish this lake, is this extremely low? The bite for me seems dead so I think im going to pack it in for the year but continue to Kayak until its to cold!
That is low. When I went there this spring I was talking to one of the home owners on the water. He said they draw down for docks every year, but every 2-3 years they draw the water down a couple of feet. Probably just one of those years, he said it was to help treatment of invasive plants but Im not sure.
I've heard of the drawdowns just never seen it this low. Also without a fish/ depth finder I never realized how shallow that Lake is, big lake. Kind of nice now I see where all the deep spots are !Fish finder for xmas! Thx for the info
Ya I have fished there since I was young and it is lowest I have ever seen it. By the way I hate that sickness when you are sick until you call in that's the worst. Hopefully you will make a full recovery ;)
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
