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.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
