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.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
