No wakes? How high is Pelican?
I read there are no wake restrictions on some wright county lakes like Clearwater and Sugar. That will make some of the bass fishing tourneys interesting.
Anybody been on Pelican lately? Is the water a few feet higher than normal there too?"Earth is the insane asylum for the universe"

I was on Clearwater last week... holy crapola is the water high.
And in the last 30 minutes a HUGE cell went right over that area again. I am guessing things are getting uglier by the minute there.
Lots of cabins on the brink of being flooded out, and plenty already are wet.

Pelican is pretty high. We just got another inch + this morning. Howard Lake is as high as I can ever remember.We have enough water to last us the rest of the year.Mike Debner

It will be interesting to see how long it takes for water levels to return to normal.

I was looking at a few random lakes in the area, and oddly, most lakes that have any long term data over 50 years, are just now returning to their average depths, other than those on river chains.I was wondering why the frisbee kept getting bigger. Then all of a sudden it hit me

I hit clearwater a couple of weeks ago and it was highest ive ever seen it. Most lakes in Stearns/Wright County are very high, people tying there boat up to tree's because they can crank there lift high enough.."Group mentality is a trap" ~ Me

The water level is perfect on Pelican right now. A little higher than it was about 3 years ago. Lot's of good fishable water.

Thanks for the replies all. The high water should be good for the panfish. More area for cover and food. I feel bad for the lake shore owners who are having water problems though."Earth is the insane asylum for the universe"
