Truck through on Chisago

3 posts in this topic

If you are heading out on Chisago do not use the plowed road going out from the west side. Went there Saturday and a truck had put the front end in. Large hole all the way through. Hole was the size of a small car. Me and another guy gave pulling them out a try but no luck it was really in there. If you drive stay off the road. I talked to DNR to mark it but not sure if they did. Any way be safe and know where you are going.

A buddy of mine went in just south of the public access Saturday afternoon. Drive the channel to get to Chisago and watch for the plowed road. There is a heave running the distance of the plowed road. He apparently did not see it and his front tire went in. A blue Chevy. Maybe some of you may have seen the excitement. I had a red Ford with white tool boxes on the sides of the box. It took quite a few good jerks to finally get him out of there. His heart was racing pretty good. Adrenaline for all was flowing. When the front tire went in, we tried to assess the situation and he pulled out a shovel all along side the passenger side of his truck the shovel went all the way through. If the truck had not been hung up on the ice I am sure it would be under water. Becareful out there! Thanks to the guys who stopped to help out. I hope no feelings were hurt when we denied assistance. I did not want to put anyone else in harms way. We went on to try and catch some fish, a few sunnies were caught. I will post some pictures of the truck a little later today if they get sent to me. If only we had a video camera.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.

      Great review Rick G! I've always been all for Gas augers but it seems seems electric is better than I think it is. I could defiantly see myself making the move in the near future.
