Water Levels in the BWCA

4 posts in this topic

Has anybody heard or been on the Moose River recently? I was wondering how low the water is and if it's making for a tough trip.

My bro-in-law just got back last friday and another guy I know just came back this weekend both from the Nina-Moose River EP, #16 I think. They both said the Moose River was very very low. MOstly pushing through the grassy weeds.

My bro in law came out on the moose river and he said the the 5+ inches of rain raised the river level about the same amount, but that its still pretty low.

Keep watching the weather reports and hoping for more rain.

Yeah, if I had it my way I'd like it to rain up until Friday and then dry out for a day before I go in on Saturday, then stay nice for about 4-5 days :-)

Not sure about Moose, but we were out in those 3 major downpours on Jul 30 and 31. 5-6 inches total for sure. We went in Sunday and out Wednesday on Little Indian Sioux River and the usual low spots just before Upper Pauness going in were up quite a bit for the time of year, and we had absolutely no problem -- noticed a major level rise -- on the way out.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
