Been ice fishing out of there for years, never been there in open water though. But we like the place and the people that run it.

my parents have a place at nodak. they went up there a week or two ago to rake lawn and get it ready for the summer. they said the marina is low just like the rest of the lake, but also that they worked on it, (rebuilding some of the retaining walls, maybe a new dock, etc.). usually there is no problems with the landing, they have it dug out enough to get your boat out. I thought i remember reading 4-8 ft in the middle last year, cant remember. But out from the marina, it is shallow, and if it is too low that could be an issue. I don't know how deep the water is out from the marina though, because i have not been up there.

The cabins look nice, though i have never been in them, the camp sites are taken care of. I think it is a nice place.

I've been going to/staying at Nodak's since 1973 (Yikes, I'm old...) shocked.gif

I agree with UMD - outside of the harbor it gets shallow, but it's all sand.

Good luck out there!

i don't know how low the lake is, so i couldn't tell ya. I hope you can get out, because if you can't, that means we probably cant with a 21' sylvan. give roger (owner) a call he should know.

I looked up the water levels at the dam and it says the level around 0.5 ft lower than last year at this time.

Cabins are well kept and the people that run the place are great. They understand fish and fisherman.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
