Lake Winnipeg---last weekend of season

7 posts in this topic

I know a lot of you had trips planned for the last weekend, but fighting floods took priority.

The bite was good all over the South basin. I fished Chalet, Gimli and Hecla Island. Caught lots of fish at all places. The big girls were few and far between for most people though.

For the guys fishing the south end, clean water was the answer. The spots that have been holding fish were done. The Red was making the water murky anywhere near it. Access was good at Warner, and the ice conditions were good.

How are things looking up there with respect to the flood?

How's Stu's place holding up?

I've been wondering the same thing as Rob- how's Stu? I've sent him a couple e-mails, but they've bounced back, saying his "quota is full". I imagine lots of e-mails in his inbox from people wishing him well.

I hope he's doing ok. Stinkin' river!

I drove by Stu's today. To me water looks un-changed. It is not in his buildings as of today. It looked like he had some dock and small boat damage that were on the shore..

I would guess the water is about 2' from the deck of the buildings. There is lots of ice in front of the dam and all down river.

Our flood forcast is very dependent on ice jams north of Selkirk.

So far so good, but that can change in an hour.

Stu took his computer out of the COTR building so he wouldn't lose it in high water. He doesn't have high speed internet at home so he probably hasn't had computer access in a week.

Thanks for the update Gator. The real water should be starting to show soon, I hope they can get that ice on the move somehow.

I was at Stu's today...the water is moving and actually gone down a bit. Still more to come when the crest arrives in a couple weeks though.
