Anyone know how much snow they're getting on LOW? I'm heading there mid week and it'd be nice to know what we're getting in to. Thanks in advance.

I think we have had close to a foot, and it's still coming down.

When we left LOW yesterday morning at 900am it was snowing hard and continued all the way to St Cloud. We got 13" down here, I'm sure they got plenty up there as well. Glad we finally got some so the guys with the sleds can enjoy their past time as well. Bill

Was out on the lake this morning...

Cross country travel with a vehicle will be tough at best. Woke up to at least 6" this morning and that wasn't counting what we got on Saturday. I would say that it's "snowcat" only if you want to get off the main roads.

I was up there wed-sun. One thing to note is that it was very windy Friday and Saturday, so the snow that they did receive has drifted pretty deep in some places.

Hey Flint,

We had a the whole family up there this past weekend. Rented a cabin at Morris and fished out of our houses. Two days of East wind, so you can guess how the fishing was. The kids got to catch some fish, and had the Kitty Cat up there for them to ride around on. Dad and Casey went in shallow one night but it was slow there too. Lots of snow now, so getting around with a vehicle will be tough.

Was fishing on one of the reefs about a week ago and did really good. I'm really liking those rocks....

Any plans on coming up? How about Paul?

Later,

Ya-

Planning on coming up this weekend. Paul should be there also if he don't have jury duty. Some of Hammer brothers are coming I guess. But I plan to hit it hard and sled some place. Reefs you say? Shallow bite on Zippel shut off yet? That was the plan is to hit that in the morn then head it north to reef hoop. Let me know if that's a good one or not?

Paul and LJ are here helping me put liquid kit on the planter. Lots of dud light last night!

Take care,

That's what I would do.

Watch the weather, Friday is supposed to be nasty then settling down for the weekend.

Give me a call if you get a chance.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
