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.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
