Water Levels

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys, how’s the lack of rain affecting the lakes. You have been getting some long stretches of hot days. I'll be up there late next month. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you out on Silvia the 23rd of September. Clearwater can be real difficult if that water level keeps dropping. A couple of feet change things dramatically. Many of the pads and reeds won't hold fish. The lake would have to be dry for me not to come up there. This will be the 19th year in a row that I'll be up there. The minute I leave I can't wait to come back.

The water levels are getting to the point that its hard to unload big boats. If you get to a landing that is rebulit, as in the fact that the DNR has fixed it becuase of the low water, then you will be ok. Watch out of low water everywhere on clearwater. Twin landing is very easy. They built that land to last in high or low water. I have a 519 bass boat, and have no problems putting it in there.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
