Rainy Water level

4 posts in this topic

I had herd that the water level was down and that several boaters did pretty good damage to their rigs. I was just wondering how much truth there is in those reports.

I don't know where you heard this because there is no way anyone is getting any sort of watercraft in there river at this point in time. Look at the posts for up-to-date information on the river opening. It will be awhile yet.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!!!

That was a report from late fall just before ice up. Sorry for the confusion.

The river was definately low going into the winter and I hope it stays that way until April 15th. Don't know if there were more or less hidden hazards? The ones that were a foot deep were now a foot out and so on. Just different ones to hit. I finally got to see a deadhead that I've been hitting for a couple of years. Hope I can remember where it is.

I have seen boats going full speed through the ~19 rock piles above Silver Creek and haven't seen one hit yet. I saw 3 or 4 of the 19 piles sticking out last fall. The folks who live below them say they have given lifts & tows to several who didn't make it through.

The river is full of hazards & suprised there aren't busted boats lining the shore the way some folks run on it.

Be safe!

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
