Have the heavy midwest rains hit NE MN and the BWCA? Are BW lake levels up, down, normal?
Average or better
is what the water levels are this spring . We’ve had a good snow cover this winter and steady rains [ light ] till today . I should be out paddling right now but if I don’t cut my grass today it’ll be a jungle. They are calling for more rain . Friends that have been out say all the lakes are high . Come on in, the waters fine ! tony
Lower h20 levels
I areas I have been in lately have been lower than expected for this early in the year. This is east of Ely.
Was 5/30 to 6/5
’Twas my first trip ever. We were in Knife Lake. The word that I received that the water was up. I certainly did not see any sign that the water was down. But I must admit that I have no point of reference.
Sawbill Outfitters reported 6/8 that they were able to canoe a creek that they usually can’t from Smoke to Sawbill. Sounds like they are up a bit.
