namakan water level

Recommended Posts

mark23

I was wondering if anybody had a good guess as to how much higher the water level on namakan is this week compared to the last week of september. I've looked at the control board web sites and those graphs look like about 8inches higher. I'm concerned about a floating dock at my place that I pull up on the beach for the winter. I leave about 2 feet of it in the water expecting it to go down not come up this late in the year.

let it snow

mark23,

I was on the lake the past 2 days - lots and lots of water on Kabetogama...am sure Namakan too. We also had rain last night.

There isn't a lot of places for the water to go right now...Rainy Lake and River are up, I'm sure LOTW is too.

No telling how fast it will drop.

Good Luck.

I was on a couple of sites I watch the water levels on and as far as I can determine it appears to me the lake may only be up 2 or maybe 3 inches since the end of September.

What site were you looking at?

I was on www.lwcb.ca/ and the increments of elevation go a foot at a time so I was just taking a good guess at the inches. That's great for my situtation if it has only been an inch or so. I've also been keeping an eye on pine aires web cam and the water hieght on there dock doesn't seem that extreme.

Here is another site you can reference as well.

We have a large floating dock as well that we string between two points in a fairly secluded area that we let freeze in each year. Been doing this for at least 10-12 years now with no problems. Good luck!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
