Lake Height?

5 posts in this topic

How's lake height been so far? Has it recovered at all?

We'll be up on Round Lake (just outside of McGregor) for Memorial weekend. I might even go up there this weekend to help put the dock and pontoon in the water.

I know last fall the height was pretty grim being as how the pontoon was resting on sand at the end of the dock.

Most all lakes up here are 2-3 foot down.

You may need a dock extention.

Wow....two to three feet? I guess I'd have to disagree with that amount. Although its still below normal, I'd guess it much less than that. We've had our place on Minnewawa for nearly 50 years so I think I can speak somewhat from experience.

I was up last Saturday and put in my lift and boat. I was able to put it back in its usual location with no trouble. The lake level has definitely recovered some because last fall I had to get help to get the boat off the lift and this year I drove it right on. I'd guess by the water marks on my lift that it is within six or so inches of its usual summer depth.

Sounds like we need some seriously rain to replenish these lakes.

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
