Rice Lake Water Level?


The Chemist

Recommended Posts

As I haven't been up to the cabin since the 5th. And due to issues at home I may not make it up for another week or so and was wondering if anyone knew what the levels were like? Preferably I would like to know if our dock is underwater and also the status of the boat. If anyone is going out there and could possibly check on it for me let me know. I would really appreciate it.

I won't be able to get out there this week. Busy getting ready for the family vacation and just found out my aunt passed away and I'll at a funeral as well this week.

I'd be very surprised if it wasn't under water. Several docks were already getting close to water level a couple of weeks ago. It's even wetter this June than last June. The ground is squishy up here right now. Seems we're getting 2-3" at least every other day lately.

Good luck with it.

We had about 1 ft of clearance on the 5th so it will be touchy.

Chemist,

Was out on Sunday and there were quite a few docks underwater. I'm going out there tomorrow, If you could tell me which place is yours I could look and give you an update.

How to explain it. From what I know it used to be the main cabin for Rice Lake Resort. It's a large brown cabin, has a treated wood steps down to the lake and we have a 32ft roll in that I just put new green treated plywood on. I also painted all the metal on the dock white. As for the boat we have a lift with a canopy but the canopys tarp hasn't been put on. The boat is a Blue lund w/ merc motor. I put a grey tarp over it. Looking towards shore there is a newer blue house to the right and next to them is a newer almost a-frame. Drop me an e-mail and I think I can get you a map as to where it is. I would greatly appreciate it. chemist70(at)yahoo(dot)com.

You may want to have a line in the water while you're checking. You catch my drift Tom? wink.gif

Hey Borch! I will indeed!

Thanks for the info by the way.

Chemist,

It's GullGuide at hotmail.

I think I may have fished by it on Sunday and if I remember right, it was underwater, but I'll check again while we're out if you could shoot me a map of the area.

Gull guide I sent you e-mail. Hopefully the boat is okay but I guess if it's hacked up insurance may take care of it. I do appreciate the help.

Hey thanks for the info. I was worried while I was down in NC.

If someone could keep me up to date on the water level I would appreciate it. Hopefully if everything works out in my life roght now I can still get up there before I head off to Ireland early next month.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
