We go up to Boulder every year for opener. Just wondering what the water level is like this year? I'm assuming low just like the past several years.

Everything is LOW in this area. Its been a while since seeing the St.Louis quite as low as it is now. Time will tell what run off we get. We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow through Wed.

Pray for rain. I think 1 foot of snow = 1 inch of rain. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't know about that, snow can be pretty dirty. I used snowballs a few times this winter to keep my minnows fresh...it made the water in my bucket very cloudy and dirty, much to my surprise. I'll stick with the ice or slush from the lake.

This time of year, because the ground cover is still dormant, slow melting snow puts less silt and other things into our lakes, rivers, and streams. Heavy rains this time of year wash all of the road salt, sand and other yuck right into drains and ditches that flow you know where.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
