Recent amount of rain & area lakes

Recommended Posts

Alan

Will all the rain we have had in the last few weeks effect the lake levels at all? I fish lake Jane quite often, and that launch is so shallow. Just wondering if we will need significant more rain fall to really effect the lake levels.

Around me, some lakes have risen six inches or more. It sure makes landing you're boat easier. Also makes the grass nice and green.

6" K Dawg? Wow. How much rain did you get in Buff?

Maybe there is hope. I wouldn't mind another shot like that before duck opener (without the excessive amounts in the SE)

I live about 8 miles from the source of the Des Moines river. It was pretty much bone dry a week ago, and it's flowing now. I know that isn't good news for people down river, but it's good for us.

Lime lake in Avoca has risen at least 8 inches. I feel that estimate is lower than the actual rise.

Local duck sloughs and swamps are no longer popcorn fart dry. They actually have water in them.

I haven't checked the lakes in the Zimmerman area but on my rain gauge from 8/13/07 to 8/20/07 we recieved 5.25 inches!! Today will add some more and I didn't have the gauge out the 10-12th when we had some rain I believe.

We still haven't received any rain in the Ottertail and Wadena area. All the rains have been going North and South. I haven't mowed my lawn since July 4th.

Same here in the Hayward WI area. Lakes are way down and some of the landings are getting pretty bad.

Alan - Have you been to Jane in the last couple of days? I'm planning on going out there this afternoon and I was wondering if the launch has gotten any deeper.

No, I have not been there in a week or so. I was thinking about going there this Sunday. Post some feedback on the launch if you go before Sunday...as I will after Sunday if I get there, but I could hit Olson and Demontriville instead...

yeah freemont has alot of shore showing on the east side of the lake.....although I drive by it everyday I have not been able to see if it has risen since the latest rains....I would guess it would have to raise a little being that we recieved 5+ inches of rain!!

Alan - The launch on Jane is still plenty shallow. It's fine right where you launch, but still really shallow going out quite a way. When we were coming in for the evening there were some kids out fishing in the water that had to be out 50-60 feet and it was only up to their knees.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
