Water temps and levels

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, one week away, can't wait to experience Rainy, I was curious as to the water temps on the lake. Not so much for fishing, but for swimming. I have a bunch of kids along, so I was wondering what the temps were shallow. Also, it sounds like you got the rain needed to get back to full pool, is that accurate. Thanks for all of your info, it makes me feel like I have some starting point. PS: I'm planning on going to One-Stop on the 14th to pick up some bait, maybe I'll bend some ears there as well. smirk.gif

Water is between 65-71 depending on where you are and how the wind is. As far as the lake level, you heard right...it's finally back up to its normal level. Also, more gates wer just opened up in the Seine and at Kettle, so we got some current going again.

Best news I've heard in a while! Coming up end of august and don't really want to smack any rocks (at least not more than usual). We have had so much rain here in Oklahoma most of our best fishing lakes have been closed due to flooding. Makes one anxious for the northland.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
