Water level


Recommended Posts

With record snow fall in International Falls, I expect the water levels in the park to be high again this coming season.

Right now the lakes are 1,114ft, by opener they should be about 1,117, and full in june at 1,118. So with snow melt and moderate rain things should look good for opener. If there's no rain they might be alittle bit below the rule curve on opener, it's all in mother natures hands now. Oh yea, and the park service controlling the dam flows, cross your fingers.

I spoke with Phil at the store this morning on this very subject and the IJC Claims that there will not be flooding this year like there was last year. Time will tell. I hope that the ice is out for opener as temps are still dropping to low teens at night and only warming to the low 40's during the day.

I would appreciate any updates on the water level from people who make it out there this weekend. We are heading up the second weekend in June to Namakan. Last year the campsite docks were under water and really hoping the water isn't as high this year. Thanks for your help.

Going by what our dock looks like I would say Crane is at about normal for this time of year.There's not a ton of rain in the forcast and the vermilion gorge is showing signs of slowing a bit.I'm not a 100% sure but rumor has the gate is open at kettle falls.So as of right now things are looking ok for your trip.I'll try to keep you updated.

Lac La Croix is over 2 feet higher than it should be, so they'll be alot of water coming down the Namakan river, but vermillion lake out flows are going down, so if Kettle falls can keep up with what La Croix is sending we should be o.k., but mother nature never sleeps so anything can happen.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
