Ware flow and trees


Recommended Posts

How is the river now for trees and items floating in the river?

Alot of flo yet or is it slowing down a bit?

Thinking of making a run to the Minnesota for some eyes and flats in the late afternoon and evening. Would rather not have to deal with floaters.

Thanks

HL a friend told me last night that is was dropping slowly and he didnt notice much in the way of floaters but I have not seen it for myself yet.

Good Luck

HL,

I haven't been on the river in a while but given the hydrograph and the fact that it's down pver 6 feet from its peak last week, I think you'd be safe.

I would guess the river will be a risin. I heard some areas of Redwood Falls recieved 6" yesterday.

i was ou saturday night and there was 60' widow makers coming down at a pretty good clip then i was out tuesday and didnt see a thing and the water was 2 feet lower at that point then i was out last night and the water was another 3' lower and all i saw was 1 giant widow maker came within 50-75 feet of the boat, but we did notice that it had piled up on shore at the next bend so i think it will be there for a while.

The river is at a safe flow, and the floaters are minimal, although, there are still someout there, so just keep an eye open. Fishing is slow, but that is probably just my lack of knowledge on how to catch them.

Well, that is what I was told. I was not there. Seems Redwood has been getting more than thier fair share of rain as of late.

Here's the site I use to see what's up on the river. Well one of them anyway:

This is the Jordan gauge in particular. Seems like the river ought to be navigable. However, the ramps are in rough shape due to the fairly rapid water drop. Lots of mud. Good luck out there.

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!

      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
