Spring water levels

Recommended Posts

ibwhnt

I haven't been up to the big lake since last summer, but what are you guys thinking about water levels. Last summer it was low but with the spring melt how much did it come up and do you think it will stay up with good rainfall. Just wondering thanks

Here is a link to the LOW Control Board.<P><A HREF="http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html</A><P>Looks like the lake is up. Hopefully it will stay at "normal" level throughout the season.

Mark, how do you open that file. I just get a statement that I need to go to the web or manually select one. Is there something I'm doing wrong??? Kaz

Here is the main site. You need Adobe Reader to open quite a few of the graph pages.<P><BR><A HREF="http://www.lwcb.ca/index.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.lwcb.ca/index.html</A>

I just tried it. I clicked on the link and it brought up the BASIN DATA page. Scroll down and click on Lake of the Woods Graph. Good point Frank, you do need Adobe Reader for it.

I'm really happy to see that it looks like the lake level will be within the norm. I suspect if Canada starts running short of electricity we'll start seeing the lake level drop.<P>It was a little disconcerting running out to the gap last year and watching the sand get churned up behind you. <P>Ryan

Looks to me like there is about 6 or 8 more inches these days compared to last fall.<P>fiskyknut

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.
