Possible new fire restriction coming!

1 post in this topic

This is the email I just got from Tracy Richards at the Forest Service.

****************************

Hi, Between Aug. 9 and Aug. 12, we have had 7 fires, of which 3 were human caused. The Canadians have been having fires as well and current conditions have allowed for smoke from these fires to be visible from quite

a distance away. Please emphasize fire safety to your visitors as

conditions are at extreme. This is also a heads up that further fire restrictions are likely to be imposed in the next few days. Please prepare folks accordingly. We will get the word out as soon as we get official direction as to the extent of the restriction. An official news release will come out and entry point bulletin boards will be posted with the current information at that time as well. If questions, please call 218-365-7619.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
