Lac Seul at flood stage; LOTW at 90 percentile

Recommended Posts

From Lake of the Woods Control Board today....

Lac Seul over 100 percentile, which means it is almost never this high. LOTW at 90 percent -- this high only 10 of 100 years...

"The Board advises that water levels and flows are very high in the English River system. Appropriate precautions should be taken.

Lac Seul outflow will be increased to 850 m³/s on Tuesday, July 22nd. This is the highest outflow since 1959. Further increases may be necessary.

The level of Lac Seul is in its flood reserve at 357.0 m (1171.3 ft). The level at Hudson (Lost Lake) is 357.3 m (1172.4 ft). The lake level rose 8 cm (3 in) over the past week and is expected to rise 4-6 cm (1.6-2.4 in) over the next week. Lac Seul outflow will be increased on Tuesday, July 22nd, nominally from 780 to 850 m³/s but subject to re-assessment. This outflow will exceed the maximum outflow during the fall flood of 1992 by about 50 m³/s and will be the highest since 1959, when outflow peaked at 920 m³/s. The diversion of water from Lake St. Joseph into Lac Seul is closed, except for minimum fishery flows.

With an increase to 850 m³/s, the level of Pakwash Lake and the English River below Ear Falls could rise 40-65 cm (16-26 in) above the level on July 21, while the level further down the English River at Grassy Narrows could rise a further 25-60 cm (10-24 in). The level of the lower Winnipeg River could eventually rise about 30-65 cm (12-26 in) below Whitedog and about 25-55 cm (10-22 in) at Nutimik Lake. These estimates are approximate and depend on a number of factors under these conditions.

The level of Lake of the Woods is 323.33 m (1060.8 ft), a 90th percentile level for this time of year. The lake level rose 1.7 cm (0.7 in) over the past week and is expected to change little over the next week. Lake of the Woods outflow is 1030 m³/s.

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

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

I would be very mindful of "deadheads" floating around. As long as the water clarity isn't bad, fishing should be fine. Fish shallower than you normally would? Fish, i.e. walleyes may be relating to weed cover that will now be abundant due to rising water. My opinion. I have had better luck fishing rising water than falling water.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
