As most already know, the area is drying down again and its time to be vigilant. I will paste in the link to the DNR site again so that those that are new here can keep an eye on area fire danger. http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/fire/index.html

We had a fire on Friday on Ely Island and the Cook Departement and the DNR are on a fire by Pearsons as I type. If you drive by the Pike River above the Hatchery, there is no water coming over the dam and only a little coming thru the spillway. Burning permits are still being issued and campfires are still ok. But if you see smoke from 8 am until 6:00 PM, its probably not suppose to be there so don't be afraid to call it in to 911. And if you don't want to go that route, you can always call me and we will check it out.

Fire was on the south side of the island to the south/west of the major point before seven sisters. It appeared to be an excaped campfire.

No restrictions yet and probably won't see any for a while. They usually let it get really dry before they start placing restrictions this time of year because with everything green, fire does not carry very well until it gets really, really dry. Use the link on the first post to get to the dnr site to stay up to date on current conditions.

Well its time to move this one back up again. Just received a call from the DNR in Tower and they shut down burning permits effective immediatly. Campfires for cooking or warming purposes are still allowed but people are asked to hold off with them until after 6:00 pm. Fire danger is Very High currently and without measurable rain may go to extreme shortly. I looked this morning and water is down over a foot from the high mark we set earlier this year. If you see or smell smoke don't hesitate to call 911 and report it. Especially if it is during the day. We would rather get paged out right away and get it taken care of, instead of waiting until it is a significant fire.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
