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!
