It's low. As I mentioned in an earlier post, 1 week ago I had 9 1/2 inches of water at the end of my 100 ft dock. My neighbor said his son took off the lower unit near the island about 3 weeks ago. I think the access is all right just be careful.

Was out there last night. I took the yard stick down to the dock and had 7 1/2" of water at the end. Seems to have gone down 2" in the last 10 days. What Deitz said is right. When the water was really low the island was a penninsula extending from the east side. I would also be careful around the west end of the island as there are rocks there. There is a shallow flat extending from the east side just as you enter the main lake coming from the north access. I would stay to west side of center. It deepens as soon as you get past that.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
