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.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
