Rain in Ely?

5 posts in this topic

Did you guys in Ely get some rain this week? Any info on the campfire/charcoal grill ban? I'm just planning my meals for the long weekend. Thanks in advance.

We got .1 or .25 two nights ago and from .75 to 1.0 last night. I haven't heard any updates on the fire ban.

You can check out the MN DNR's website about the fire ban. There should definately be a link on there that will give you an update on the fire restrictions. Smokey the Bear still says "Extreme" fire danger today on my way to work, so I am speculating the ban hasn't been lifted yet.

Later,

Justin

The forest service website still has a ban on all open flames including charcoal. We still need a lot more rain to get that sucker lifted.

Yeah, we will need a couple more inches for them to lift it completely. All we had was .67 inches in Ely. A day or two more w/o rain and were right back in fire danger.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
