Ive been kepping track of the water levels here in brainerd and its been up and down the last month or so. Right now its about 2 feet under its highest point which occured this spring. But thats up north here and it is prolly totally different down there.

I was out between the 169 bridge and Anoka-Ramsey this morning. I'm no expert on the river, so as far as comparing water levels to what they were last week or last month, I have no idea, but I would definitely call the current right now pretty moderate. Easily manageable, you shouldn't have a problem at all. Good luck!

What kind of boat ya runnin' lotsofish, I've been in and out a couple times each day and wonder what FM'ers are out there.

The level at my house is down from last week, don't really matter below the bridge, they try to hold 830 above sea level at the dam. Up river from the bridge its down a foot from last monday and an inch from yesterday, my neighbor hauled his first lower unit casualty off the creek last week, I've quit doing it cept for fishing boats, I've even hauled the Anoka Sherrif off, it gets old. It was a zoo above the bridge today, and in front of my place for that matter. I wanted to fish my section and gave up there was so much wave action. mad.gif

I have an older 16' aluminum Lund that I repainted dark blue. You can tell it's me because I have a 35 Johnson and a 6 Johnson on the back. I'm not sure when I'll be back, but hopefully I have better luck next time. It was really windy when I was out, I wonder if that had anything to do with it? Maybe I'll have to be adventurous and go above the bridge...I haven't done that yet. If I use the 6 horse (short shaft) I can make it through about 1.2 FOW, but it takes a while to get anywhere. Probably a lot safer though. cool.gif

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
