      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

FYI on rising water levels

Recommended Posts

Lake of the Woods and Lac Seul are very high and nearing flood stage. Here's the report released today from the lake of the woods control board...

fyi to all who own property or whatever...

"Lac Seul outflow will be increased to 770 m³/s on Wednesday, July 16th. This is the highest outflow since September 1992, when outflow peaked at 798 m³/s. Further increases may be necessary.

The level of Lake of the Woods is 323.32 m (1060.8 ft), an 80th percentile level for this time of year. The lake level rose 3 cm (1.2 in) over the past week and is expected to rise up to this amount over the next week. Lake of the Woods outflow is 1025 m³/s.

The level of the Winnipeg River continues to be above normal but should be fairly stable over the next week.

The level of Lac Seul is 356.95 m (1171.1 ft), a 95th percentile level for this time of year. The lake level rose 9 cm (3.5 in) over the past week and is expected to rise 5-7 cm (2.0-2.8 in) over the next week. Lac Seul outflow will be increased on Wednesday, July 16th, probably from 710 to 770 m³/s but subject to re-assessment. The diversion of water from Lake St. Joseph into Lac Seul is closed, except for minimum fishery flows.

With an increase to 770 m³/s, the level of Pakwash Lake and the English River below Ear Falls could rise 25-60 cm (10-24 in), while the level further down the English River at Grassy Narrows could rise 30-70 cm (12-28 in). The amount of rise depends very much on how long the high outflow must be maintained and on what happens with the unregulated tributary flow over the next few days to weeks.

If further information is required, please call toll-free to the Board's Secretariat at 1-800-661-5922."

Will this raise or lower the water levels on Lake Minnitaki, just below Souix Lookout? Have heard that the lake is currently at a very high level and the docks at Pickeral Arm Camp are almost underwater. Headed there July 25th so am very interested.
