Water conditions

9 posts in this topic

How the water levels on Cass now? We're going to be up there next Wednesday for our annual MEA trip. Hopefully we can float a boat this year, last year we struggled to get out of the harbor. We did some serious dredging with the lower unit to get out.

You should be ok... It all depends on what they do with the dams.. If Clark reads this he may be able to give you an more accurate reading on the water levels... Clark owns Horseshoe Resort and knows this lake about as good as anyone... I know Pike Bay is low. PBC had a tough time getting his 621 off the lift last week... That was before the rain we had... Cass only recieved a dusting of the snow compared to the west in Bemidji that recieved almost 2 inches of that white stuff....

Darn right I had a tough time. It sucks we have to worry about the water levels every year now it seems.

Some accesses will be very tough if you have a high sitting boat or trailer.

Consider yourselves lucky. I've had my boat off the lift since the week prior to Labor Day due to low water levels near Alexandria. Took me 30 minutes to rock the boat (1850 Crestliner) off the lift way back then.

The rain we had earlier this week helped out alot with the water levels. It seems like the lake is up about 2 to 3 inches, possibly as much as 4 inches. The lake isn't nearly as low as it was this time last year.

You should have no problem getting out to the main lake from Sunset. As far as spots for that time of year....I assume walleyes.....any of the steep breaks on the main lake bars should produce. Deadman's, Turtle River, North Cedar, as well as some of the deep humps on the main lake. Also check out Allen's Bay.

Hope this helps.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
