Has anybody heard or been on the Moose River recently? I was wondering how low the water is and if it's making for a tough trip.

My bro-in-law just got back last friday and another guy I know just came back this weekend both from the Nina-Moose River EP, #16 I think. They both said the Moose River was very very low. MOstly pushing through the grassy weeds.

My bro in law came out on the moose river and he said the the 5+ inches of rain raised the river level about the same amount, but that its still pretty low.

Keep watching the weather reports and hoping for more rain.

Yeah, if I had it my way I'd like it to rain up until Friday and then dry out for a day before I go in on Saturday, then stay nice for about 4-5 days :-)

Not sure about Moose, but we were out in those 3 major downpours on Jul 30 and 31. 5-6 inches total for sure. We went in Sunday and out Wednesday on Little Indian Sioux River and the usual low spots just before Upper Pauness going in were up quite a bit for the time of year, and we had absolutely no problem -- noticed a major level rise -- on the way out.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
