The Ups and Downs of Lake Pulaski
Literally up and down. Lake Pulaski in Wright County is a Minnesota lake that just could not make up its mind about its water level. Why? This is a spring-fed lake, and the level is determined by the output levels of the springs. The water’s edge would sometimes reach the doorsteps of the Lake Pulaski homes.
That was then. This is now. Lake Pulaski now has giant pumps that send excess water to Buffalo Lake as soon as it reaches a certain level. Experts think that this may be why Buffalo Lake now has Eurasian milfoil in it. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Eurasian milfoil is not the end of the world, Owners of homes on Lake Pulaski know that muskies thrive in Eurasian milfoil.
About Lake Pulaski
This lake is 702 acres large, and has a maximum depth of 87 feet, and a mean depth of 25 feet.
About 122 acres of it is classified as littoral. But get a load of this: The clarity of the water is eight to nine and a half feet, depending on which reports you believe. Either way, this is an impressive Minnesota lake. The lake is clear because it is part of a very small watershed. The bottom substrate is primarily sand and gravel.
There is a city owned access on the SW shore with a concrete ramp and twelve trailer spaces. The lake is one of the larger and deeper lakes in Wright County Minnesota, and is located within the limits of the City of Buffalo. It is just about a half-hour drive from Minneapolis.
The state manages this lake primarily for walleye. According to the DNR, the walleye population is large, but fishermen report that they are sometimes difficult to catch. The efforts to manage walleye in this lake have been successful. It is believed that some natural reproduction of walleyes in the lake is contributing to their population numbers. The walleye seem to grow very fast in this lake.
If you want to catch those walleye, get a good lake map and look for the sunken island off of the west side. The locals claim that black leeches will work well here during the summer months. Better yet, buy home on Lake Pulaski and fish the whole darn lake.
