It rained all day today in Duluth. Any rain up north?

A little bit, didn't really add up to much. Still looks like rain today so we'll see what happens. We need about 2-3 days of a steady rain before it will help matters.

We had some rain up to 1/2 inch in places but still real dry. Fire restrictions still in place. No open fires, not even charcoal.

The weather looks like it may rain up north this weekend so I am going to stay home and try to wrap up some of these last chores that I have yet to finish like the trailer on our little boat and some fence mending so I can turn it back on. My wife is sick of the horses walking through it all the time. So rain this weekend and be nice next weekend.

I went from Kab to Crane Lake via road at 3:30 pm, 5/16. It rained hard for about 10 miles of the whole trip - some north of Orr, most east of Orr. Little is better than none. Please be careful w/ fires!

I called VNP yesterday and asked about the burn ban. Still in effect, not to be lifted "anytime in the near future." I didn;t ask them to elaborate as the lady seemed annoyed that I called and asked.

Guess I'll wait till the day I am on my way up to call again but those of you up that way, please post if you get rain.

The word I have is they are looking at a rain deficit of like 3 inches for this calender year and are like 12 inches behind overall.

I am hoping it rains this weekend enough to allow campfires by Wed of next week.

Speak for yourself . . . heading up Saturday and coming out Wednesday. I think the rain can wait until Wednesday. wink.gif Face it, a monsoon could hit and that burn ban isn't coming off for weeks.

Agreed with 4ball. We need steady rain over a period of a week before they will even consider taking the ban off. It is VERY dry in the area!

Got back late from VNP on 5/18, they have had no rain worth mentioning. All wood and charcoal fires are prohibited. Bring a coleman stove for cooking. Park Service was checking campsites for violators.

Kab area got nearly an inch of rain the night of 5/18. I. Falls about the same - not as much in the Ash River area. Should see an update on the park web site Monday morning.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...
