I'm heading back up to the park this weekend. Can anyone help me out with a few questions? I have not been up there for 3 weeks. Is the water level still way down? Are the black flies driving campers off the islands yet? Does anyone know if there is a web site that shows which campsites have docks? I have never camped at a site with a dock but since I have a new boat this year I thought it might be nice.

Hi H.G. - You can stop at the Kab Visitor Center and they have Camping maps that show the sites on the islands. They show if the access is rock, sand, or have docks. You may try www.nps.gov/voya for some add'l info. I'm going up to the state forest campground at Chief Woodenfrog tomorrow. Sites are primitive and $9 a night. Stop by and say hello. I have a blue 94 Ford f-150 truck and a blue 86 Lund Mr.Pike with a 50 HP Merc. Good fishin !

Hockey Guy,
The area over the last two days has received about 2 1/4" of rain, and heavier rain south of us. All rainfall south of us thats North of the Laurentian divide flows into are network of waterways, which effects Kab.
Over the past two days the water has come up 2-4' and will probably come up that again over the next few days, all good news.

A couple of the downpours have helped wash away lots of the mayflies, so maybe we have shortened their visit.

Bad news, we expect mosquitoes to get much worse, fishing can only improve, it has been slow last few days due to storms. Expect the fish masses to move to reefs for summertime fishing. LOL, guts <{{{{><

      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

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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!
