Lake water levels, especially Ida

Recommended Posts

crusher61

Does anybody know what the lake water levels are like in the Alex area, especially Lake Ida? I've heard reports of a few lakes in Minnesota being as much as 4 feet low. We fish Ida the first week of June and I was hoping there was not that bad a drought in the Alex area. Thanks.

Miltona is a tad bit high, compared to where we should be this time in the spring. The late season snow, a few good early spring rains, and we made up for all the deficit from last fall.

I assume Ida is the same.

I went past the creek between Ida and Charlie and it was up fairly high at least to normal stage so a good amount of water is going over the dam on Ida.

Water levels on Ida are good. Dramatically up from last fall. I'll be hitting it this upcoming weekend. Looks like I should pack the longies and the rain gear.

I was on Ida on Saturday and the water levels at normal levels if not a little high. Now if we could just get the wind to settle down for a little while.

Good to hear!! The water level last summer was way to low on Miltona for my liking.

We have been getting some decent rains the last few days. Lake levels are holding pretty decent as of right now. It would have been nice to see more rain, but if it rains much during the summer, it should be ok. If we have another dry summer, lake levels will be real low come fall, worse than last year.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
