We have had a lot of rain up here and the water levels are up about a foot and a half in the last two weeks. We are right in the middle of the rule curve range for this time of the year.

It's pouring right now, we'll probably get another 1"-1 1/2" today so the water will keep on rising. If it keeps up we will be out of the rule curve shortly.

Here's the link to Rainy Lake water levels. As you will notice the blue water level line should be in between the heavy black dotted lines(which it is), but any more heavy rains and we will be at the top of the curve.

So water levels will be at the upper ends of normal levels when you come up!

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
