Can anyone up in the Crosslake area tell me what the snow levels are like?

Thanks in advance.

It's been raining today. About the only place we have snow is where it was plowed up. Plus they are talking 50s this weekend. It is going fast now.

Just got off the lake. About 2-4 inches of water on top of the ice. It is SLIPPERY out there!

Thanks guys for your response. I was going up this weekend to check on the place and wasn't sure if I should take the 4X4 or car to get down our driveway. Sounds like the snow for the most part is history.

With the lack of snow, where do people predict the water levels being this spring? Especially Pelican and North Long. Same as Oct., lower, higher?

Pelican is going to eat a lot of lower units this year!! She is low right now, this snow melt will do very little

I agree,,, unless we get alot of rain this spring things don't look good at all.

I thought the rule was an inch of water for every foot of snow........may gain an inch or so....not enough to counter the foot we lost.

That's going to suck. Currently we have 309ft of dock and there was only 17" of water at the end of the dock in Oct. I am not sure the boat will even fit on the lift. Hopefully the water is low enough that the dock will reach the drop off.

Trophy,

Are you on the east side of the lake? A friend lives just north of the public beach and all of last year his dock/lift was useless. That has got to suck paying those lakeshore mortages/taxes and not be able to even dock and use the boat. It is not looking good at all we need some serious rain. Hang in there and pray for rain.

Yeah, we are north of Velvet Beach, part of the big sand bar that comes out. It is going to be a long year if we don't get rain. When we bought the place 5 years ago we had 100ft of dock and we had 40" of water. Scary how a couple of bad years can drop the water that much. Without access to the water the property value really isn't what its supposed to be. Jetskis are even hard to get off the lifts. It will all come back up in due time, but it is hard in the low times.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.
    • Surface Tension
      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
