LOW LOW LOW Water

9 posts in this topic

Just a heads up for the summer home owners in this great part of the state....

If you have not been up here lately, you may want to bring a crane or other heavy piece of machinery to get your boat off the lift. Local Marine stores are getting flooded with phone calls on how to get boats off the lift due the extremely low water...

I'm not a lake home owner but most of the accesses I have been to are VERY shallow... Sounds like we could have some significant rain this weekend... Hopefully we get some rain!!!!

I'm going to start a list of shallow or dangerous accesses:

1. Cameron-Lake Bemidji

2. Nymore-Lake Bemidji

3. Old Conway resort--Big lake (Thanks Woodman)

4. Big Turtle Access is getting shallow now...

5. Knutson Dam--Cass Lake

6.

Good Luck,

Beef

I saw someone trying to put a boat in at Diamond today. Besides fighting the wind, it looked like there was a very big drop in the middle of the ramp about 1/2 way out. His trailer jumped up quite a bit.

6. Turtle River Lake is unbearable!

7. Good luck getting into Movil through Big Turtle...

8. Julia has significant rock piled up behind the hole where you initially dump in.

For future reference, where is the Old Conway ramp, and is it open to the public? Sounds like it would be better for me than the USFS ramp on the east side of the lake - the road in is usually a washboard, even a few days after it gets graded.

There is not a landing at the Old Conway resort. What Beef was talking about was a post I put about Big Lake and how low the lake is. The old resort has sand bars out of the water for a ways out of the lake. There is not a landing there. You have to use the public landing. I know it is rough on your triler so be careful.

Thanks. I've driven past Conway Drive countless times and would hate to think I've been driving further than I had to.

My family owns the old Conway resort and it:

1. Doesn't have a public access

2. If it did, you would have to back your trailer out about 100 yards.

Lake Irving water level went up about 3 inches over the past few days. It's a start anyways . . .

I'm only backing 90 now. grin.gif Hope this rain does some good - the public launch was pushing my ability to get my boat in without getting hung up. Since you are familiar with the area, is it safe to park at the Andrusia ramp?

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
