Marine/ Copus Area water levels.

3 posts in this topic

Anyone been up in this area lately? Wondering what the water levels are like compared to this time last year.......want to know if I can bring the big boat, or if I have to bring the little guy. I know the area pretty well, and am wondering if I can get by with my 150. Thanks!

Then water levels are generally up right now but I'd keep the bigger rig put away for the first trip. Saw sandbars I have never seen before upriver this year but this last Saturday it appeared the water was up and that the sandbars are now once again shoals. Haven't been to the Copas area but I would say make the first trip with the smaller rig and if you feel you can get the bigger boat in after that then come back and drop it in. At least that way you can fish and explore a bit and decide whether you can get the big boat in.

Thanks for the help! I love that area up there, but never seem to get up there until fall. If the water level is as high as it was last year, I can usually take the big rig. How's fishing been?

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
