What are the river and lake water levels up that way looking like so far this year?

Thanks,

AJ

Low. Very, very low.

Deerdragger is right. It is extremely low.

I live on a small (100 +- acre) lake that last late summer and fall was lower than I've seen it in my 16 years here. The rains last weekend helped, it's now back up to about what I expect to see for this time of year, having gained about 8-10 inches with the subsequent run-off (or run-in?). I suppose the topo around each lake affects this differently, but I'm pleased with how we're looking right now. PS- last night was my first time in a boat this year, I caught 6 crappies in the 10 to 11 inch range, and my buddy got zip, zilch, nada, skunked, but hey- who keeps track of who caught how many?

I am wondering if anybody knows what the access conditions on bowstring are? We usually use the public access on the north end of the lake, but a few years ago we were unable to get on the lake because of very low water levels.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
