It is very crispy here! I have placed restrictions on myself, and would suggest that for anyone else. The risk for a campfire may be small, but the potential consequences terrible. Many trees are dropping leaves, and ferns and blueberry plants appear dead. I would suggest a campstove, or at most a charcoal cookfire. On the bright side, the weather is comfortable, few annoying insects, and decent fishing. At this moment there is a pine fly hatch going on, but it does not seem to be affecting the fishing as mayflys xometimes do. Tonight's pic: e8550eb7.jpg

according to the ash river center you can still have campfires in the rings. She said it could change in a couple days if its dry.

Just received an email from the DNR. Effective Friday Aug 17th at 8:00 a.m. an increase in restrictions will take place. For Cook, Lake, and St. Louis Counties a full fire ban will be in place. NO CAMPFIRES allowed even in designated fire rings due to the dry conditions. Only exception is campfires are allowed in the abovce counties that are within 1 mile of Lake Superior and are in a designated/patrolled campground. So if you are in these counties and are further away from Lake Superior than 1 mile then campfires are prohibited.

Bummer! I was camping up on Namakan this past weekend and campfires were still allowed. Looks like I picked the right weekend! smile.gif

FROM THE NPS -

VOYAGEURS NATIONAL PARK ISSUES BURNING RESTRICTIONS

Severe drought conditions and lack of rainfall have increased fire danger that continues to plague Northeastern Minnesota. In cooperation with area counties, the Minnesota DNR, U.S. Forest Service, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, fire restrictions will be implemented in Voyageurs National Park.

Effective Friday, August 17, 2007 at 8:00 am, Voyageurs National Park will prohibit all campfires within the park. The following restrictions will apply throughout the park:

Not Allowed:

· recreational fires (campfires)

· charcoal or paper fueled fires or grills

Allowed:

· gas and propane fired camp stoves, grills, or similar devices

“We ask for everyone’s understanding and cooperation during this critical time,” VNP Superintendent Miller said. “We will remove these restrictions as soon as conditions within the park become favorable.”

Fire restrictions on still as of 8/23/07, 2pm. We have had very little rain in the last few weeks, just about 2 tenths of an inch. It will take some serious rain before fires are allowed.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
