How high's the water mamma?

So how is everyone doing with all of this rain? Anyone having any flooding problems? I just took a drive around Rochester and there are quite a few spots that look bad. Sounds like it is much worse to the east of here. Looks like fishing will be out of the question for a while eh...?

I grew up by Lewiston and checked with my parents and they said they got 17"!!! They have one of those digital rain gauges. They have 3 inches of water in their lower basement, but they're not complaining too much because there are people who have it a lot worse and there are also 6 confirmed deaths due to this flooding.

I also have a cousin that lives in Goodview and he had about 2 feet of water on the main floor of his house as well as a basement full of water.

My thoughts and prayers to those who lost a loved one to this disaster.

Johnny Cash says it's flying through the Falls and Hammond.

Spent the day in Hammond moving stuff to higher ground. I made a trip to Ponderosa, Macs, The Green Bridge, The Falls and Hammond. Yikes!

The Zumbro goes through our back yard. We are up on a small cliff. The river was way out of its banks last night behind our place and about seven or eight feet up the cliff. The water was over some of the roads west of Mantorville.

When we go out on the deck it sounds like a train roaring through the trees below.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
