How high's the water mamma?

10 posts in this topic

So how is everyone doing with all of this rain? Anyone having any flooding problems? I just took a drive around Rochester and there are quite a few spots that look bad. Sounds like it is much worse to the east of here. Looks like fishing will be out of the question for a while eh...?

I grew up by Lewiston and checked with my parents and they said they got 17"!!! They have one of those digital rain gauges. They have 3 inches of water in their lower basement, but they're not complaining too much because there are people who have it a lot worse and there are also 6 confirmed deaths due to this flooding.

I also have a cousin that lives in Goodview and he had about 2 feet of water on the main floor of his house as well as a basement full of water.

My thoughts and prayers to those who lost a loved one to this disaster.

Johnny Cash says it's flying through the Falls and Hammond.

Spent the day in Hammond moving stuff to higher ground. I made a trip to Ponderosa, Macs, The Green Bridge, The Falls and Hammond. Yikes!

The Zumbro goes through our back yard. We are up on a small cliff. The river was way out of its banks last night behind our place and about seven or eight feet up the cliff. The water was over some of the roads west of Mantorville.

When we go out on the deck it sounds like a train roaring through the trees below.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
