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...

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
