WARNING TO ANGLERS ON THE RED RIVER!

WARNING TO ANGLERS ON THE RED RIVER!

ORWELL Dam Near FERGUS FALLS will be opening there control gates this week. The gates will be raised to alow for a seasonal drain down of Orwell reservoir in preparation for spring run off.

All ice houses on the Red and its tributaries in the headwater region are advised to be removed as soon as possable.

The rush of water will flood over the ice possibly up to a foot. This will make removal of remaining fish houses difficult if not impossible.

If you know of anyone who has a ice house on the river please contact them and advise them of the pending conditions.

I would take this advisory very seriously if you value your ice shack and wish to avoid any fines for houses left unattended or neglected.

BE SAFE!

Thank you.

Backwater Eddy.......><ND>

Who knows Dark30? They be busy beavers that bunch.

This drain down is more of a preparation for days to come I think? Trying to keep extra pressure off local communities as the main spring thaw rush's by.

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.
