Pike Bay water level

9 posts in this topic

I was just curious how the water level is doing. Did the rain and ole river bring it up any yet or are we going to have to shovel out sand at the launch this year. Opener is just around the corner. I can't wait. I can't wait. I can't wait. Sorry, just so anxious.

Thanks PBC,

How far before it is at what you would consider normal pool level.

The water level came up about 5 inches but it would take another foot to make traveling from lake to lake a good option. Pray for rain... frown.gif

I'll be staying on Androsia during the third week of August. What are the odds that the stream connecting Androsia to Cass is traversable by boat at that time of year?

Yesterday I saw two big boats go from andrusia to cass so there must be enough water to pass a big boat now. Last fall I went through the river between andrusia and cass many times and made it by easily but I also had a small boat.

Going between the two will be good in August... The main concern is the opening going into Cass..

This time of the year the water can have a pretty good current running from Andrusia-Cass.. Last year docking at Pike Hole was interesting at times...

Could you define "big" and "small"? I'll be piloting a 19ft YarCraft.

Thanks for the replies!

I have an 18'6" Tuffy and there is NO problems going through there right now.. In August sometimes depending on the summer you may need to use a kicker or your bow mount to get through...

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
