Just a heads up for the summer home owners in this great part of the state....

If you have not been up here lately, you may want to bring a crane or other heavy piece of machinery to get your boat off the lift. Local Marine stores are getting flooded with phone calls on how to get boats off the lift due the extremely low water...

I'm not a lake home owner but most of the accesses I have been to are VERY shallow... Sounds like we could have some significant rain this weekend... Hopefully we get some rain!!!!

I'm going to start a list of shallow or dangerous accesses:

1. Cameron-Lake Bemidji

2. Nymore-Lake Bemidji

3. Old Conway resort--Big lake (Thanks Woodman)

4. Big Turtle Access is getting shallow now...

5. Knutson Dam--Cass Lake

6.

Good Luck,

Beef

I saw someone trying to put a boat in at Diamond today. Besides fighting the wind, it looked like there was a very big drop in the middle of the ramp about 1/2 way out. His trailer jumped up quite a bit.

6. Turtle River Lake is unbearable!

7. Good luck getting into Movil through Big Turtle...

8. Julia has significant rock piled up behind the hole where you initially dump in.

For future reference, where is the Old Conway ramp, and is it open to the public? Sounds like it would be better for me than the USFS ramp on the east side of the lake - the road in is usually a washboard, even a few days after it gets graded.

There is not a landing at the Old Conway resort. What Beef was talking about was a post I put about Big Lake and how low the lake is. The old resort has sand bars out of the water for a ways out of the lake. There is not a landing there. You have to use the public landing. I know it is rough on your triler so be careful.

Thanks. I've driven past Conway Drive countless times and would hate to think I've been driving further than I had to.

My family owns the old Conway resort and it:

1. Doesn't have a public access

2. If it did, you would have to back your trailer out about 100 yards.

Lake Irving water level went up about 3 inches over the past few days. It's a start anyways . . .

I'm only backing 90 now. grin.gif Hope this rain does some good - the public launch was pushing my ability to get my boat in without getting hung up. Since you are familiar with the area, is it safe to park at the Andrusia ramp?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
