I talked with Luke Rutten, Forest Hydrologist Chippewa Nat'l Forest this morning - he gave us another site to check the water levels on the Cass chain;
http://www2.mvr.usace.army.mil/WaterControl/stationinfo2.cfm?sid=KNUM5&fid=KNUM5&dt=S
This will give you lake levels by the hour.

You can also use http://www.mvp-wc.usace.army.mil/projects/Winni.shtml
a few more bottons to click but it will also give Cass Lake water levels.

Remember normal pool for Cass is 1301.55 ft above sea level.

Make sure it's tap water - don't need a ticket for transporting contaminated water.
We've got enough problems of our own in MN

Texan,

We are .15 - .18 feet above normal pool
Maybe some of you math wizzards can figure tenths of feet to inches..........

Col Ron,

Add 1200.00 to the 101.78 to get the pool elevation = 1301.78

It was really hard to not add a line in there comparing my last post to Gowdy....thought that would be a little over the line, you smart boys can catch my drift though Twisted Evil

Don't get Gowdy started or he'll be telling us how he uses it to check the depth of the pool or how he uses it to troll for musky.

One use in recent years has been as a depth finder, in the main lake bars. I usually fish in 8-12 ft of water.

Gowdy Cool Laughing Surprised
