What way does the Rainy River flow? into LOTW? Or out?

It flows from Rainy Lake into LOTW

I've been standing here for 5 years trying to convince myself that it flows that way. At our place the river is flowing directly north and that just goes against all the midwest logic I contain.

Of all our guests that stand on the bank & venture a guess, I'm betting half guess wrong, so you're in good company not knowing.

Good point Doug! It's just as confusing to drive Hwy. 11 from here to Baudette. I swear I'm going west all the way when in reality the road goes every direction but east at some point.

On a different note, with the rain we're getting here now and south of here the last few days the river level should be in fine shape, although it'll probably be stained below the tribs.

Not too worried about the stain. The water is as clear as I've seen it in 5 years. Was actually able to see and retrieve a prop, nut, and bushing with a wire in about 4 feet of water off our dock the other day.

That is amazing for the Rainy!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
