East Bearskin lake got 4 3/4 inches of rain. Hungry Jack Lake reported up to 7 inches. This was all last night. The Forest Service has lifted the fire ban. At least in our part of the forest.

Great news, Gunflint. We were looking forward to the first couple of days of October without a fire - looks like we'll get to have one now. With the lack of rain I really didn't have any hope at all of the ban being lifted. Hopefully the rain will come in more regular, smaller batches from here on out!

They lifted it in the Two Harbors area as well as Duluth.

Isle Royale National Park informed me on Friday that the fire ban on the island has been lifted as well.

Gunflint,

Thanks for the update. Hope the wet pattern continues, perhaps just in smaller amounts at a time. I know your area, as is N. Wi. way behind in rain-snow the last, seems like 2 years now. It would be nice to be able to have a campfire as daylight hours are decreasing quickly now. Most probably know, but inlets with good water moving can be good in the fall. I always will fish them if currents present.Jig and minnow time, gettin close now. I"ll be up your way in a few weeks, looking forward to catchen up with you again.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
