south central water levels?

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the water levels are like on smaller ponds and sloughs relative to this time last year.

Way down from last year. Our wetland was about 3' deep last fall. This year there are a couple small, very shallow puddles left. July and early August were very dry and fall recharge has been hit and miss by areas. In much of Steele and southern Waseca Co.'s it's been miss. frown.gif

The sloughs I have look at this year I would say the bigger ones are down about 2-5in compared to last year. The small ones are about the same as the big ones or pretty much dry. This is in the Brown and Nicollet county area. Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
