Campbell/Otter lake

3 posts in this topic

Hey the lake up above the dam -- is it deep enough to launch a pontoon boat for slow-boat pleasure riding around the campground / sanctuary area? There's a relay for life event there next Friday and I was hoping to get the pontoon in there that evening. I heard they were drawing the water down on the resovoir and didn't know the status as of yet.

Any help would be appreciated. Is the water much much lower than normal up there? The ramp is over by Cenex in that little lagoon, I wonder if there's even water there.

The water isn't flowing over the dam, but I would guess it's deep enough for a pontoon. I saw a ski boat out there a week or so ago cruising slowly near the park where they do the water skiing.

I'll check out the ramp at the park, but there is also a ramp on the west side of School Road bridge by Robert's Field (baseball diamonds).

Great, thanks for the info. If they're skiing out there, then slow pontooning should be a cakewalk. If you get a chance to check out the ramp, let me know.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
