The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.
Any other info about VC? Got kid and and fam coming up. Been a couple years but really liked it.
Reviews on line still good. Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?
Being on west not a place we go often.
Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?
Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.
Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here:
Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard. The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage. Some say a tornado skipped thru that area. Looking at the destruction, I could believe it. I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.
Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.
