Have you ever seen it lower?

5 posts in this topic

I started fishing the Monti Stretch in '88. I can't remember for sure, but it looks lower now than then. Anyone know for sure?

I've only live here 3 years and really didn't pay much attention to it before I started fishing it this year, but it is as low as I have seen it. The local news station said that this is the driest July/August stretch in 41 years, so it must be as close to a record low as it has been in a long time. We waded several stretches yesterday near Becker and had good luck doing so.

I started in '88 also. This is as low as it's been since then.

I've lived in Sauk Rapids since 91 and I don't remember it lower. A friend at work lives south of St. Cloud and he said he has seen it lower by about 2 feet. He's at 10 feet in front of his place right now. I think he has lived there for about 30 years.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
