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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
