water level?

4 posts in this topic

What do you guys think all the rain this week(so it says in the paper and on the news) is going to do too the water level of the minnesota river this weekend? Plan on going out saturday afternoon and staying out all night. Do you think it will be way up or do you think it will stay about where it is at right now? (Thinking about the shokapee/Savage area). Plus what is the water temp around this area? And do you even think it would be worth the travel time there?(with the spawn being talked about right now). Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I think the water level will come up some, but not way up. I dont think you will have to worry about raging current or anything. As far as fishing, I dont fish the MN so I cant help much. Im sure other MN river guys will chime in here.

well just got home from the river and the water is rising but dont fear its a good thing the fish are biting and the current as of yet is raging and I dont think its gonna be real bad find the bait fish and you should do fine.water temp was around 69 degrees

You should be good to go man...the river will certainly go up but you should have plenty of sandbars to camp out on this weekend and it looks to be nice Saturday for sure. Not sure the water temps up there but they are sticking pretty close to 60 still down here. May not be the best fishing this weekend but it sure seems like you got plans for a good weekend either way.
