    Wisconsin-Chippewa Flowage

    I'm heading up Friday for a week in Minocqua and taking my kayak. Does anyone know the regs for nonmotorized craft up there? I have an Ascend 12T fishing kayak. As far as I understand it I'm not needing registration; I bought my unit on craigslist and I dont have a title so I am hoping i'm correct that I need not worry about it. If you can ease my mind I'd appreciate it:) I do not have it registered in MO as it's not needed. Only using a paddle, no trolling motor or electronics of any type...

    Beautiful Day on Middle Meramec

    Looks like a memorable day! thanks for sharing the pics, I need to get out ASAP.

    She's blowing out

    Here we go again. I had to drive up to Quincy, IL for a memorial service, rained non-stop. As I was heading back to STL my phone started sending flood alerts. Sure enough, many of the rivers and creeks that were contained on my drive up were surging out and fields were flooding fast. Could be a long week for many of those areas, I hope we stay lower than anticipated but it's been going up quickly. Anxious for some sunshine, seems like it's been a while. FWIW the Willman road closure listed below is essentially the spot where you turn 'right' to get to Route 66 boat ramp. It'll prob be inaccessible, not that anyone would want to try and put in there if she's up that high. Update as of 5:00am today (3/27) from Eureka City Hall The Meramec River is expected to crest a bit lower on Friday than anticipated (21.4ft. vs. an earlier 24ft.). However, rain is expected on Thursday and to continue through the weekend. Our Emergency Management team is monitoring the situation closely and is already working behind the scenes to make sure we are prepared. https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?gage=erkm7&wfo=lsx 24.5 The athletic fields at Eureka Senior High School begin flooding near this height. 23.8 Spring River Ranch Road begins flooding near this height on the east end. 22 Willman Road near the Highway 109 bridge becomes inundated and impassable. 21.2 Hunters Ford Road is closed near this height. 21 West Spring River Road becomes inundated at this height

    Met a new friend and tough conditions 3/3/18

    River looked pretty nice this morning, Jim. Looks essentially cleared up and about 'normal' level once again. Still cant see the rocks on the north side of the Eureka boat ramp (between 44 bridge and old Rt. 66 bridge) but she was pretty low for a good while prior to the recent deluge.

    Kinda surprised yesterday that the river had still been going up. I went the reverse direction of my run the day before and the spot I said was nearly over the bank was blocked off. I guess the main Rt 66 Park entrance is closed and the road was nearly underwater or partially covered; I went by the sign and looked down the path a bit and it was about 5ft underwater so I couldn't get near the entrance by the boat ramp to check it out. Pretty cool to be cruising along almost at the same level as the river on the run though, that current is RIPPING along. Nasty. Edit: park back open today

    i went for a run in Route 66 yesterday and she looked about a foot from coming over the bank just north of the old Rt 66 bridge (where the path from parking area comes thru the woods to the river). Kind of amazing how close we are to major issues, glad I live up on a ridge. Thankful for some dry days and sunshine.

    Not sure if this will load but drone footage taken this morning @ Eureka. For those of you that may be in the area or passing thru there's several flood closures, I just heard W is now closed/underwater as well: Twin River Road Huntersford Road Willman Road Spring River Ranch Road Bald Pate Road

    The rain helped

    looked pretty chocolatey this a.m. @ the Eureka crossing.

    I'd invite you to mock me but I just post about my inability to ever catch a stupid fish in the dead zone I frequent so it would really only be kicking me when I down already.

    Maybe I should have said 50, in case it was a below average kind of day.

    Ah, the oldest trick in the book. It's cold, global warming is a hoax. I'm out, go back to your Fox News. Thanks for bringing the Eureka stuff up, I'll start a diff thread if anything develops.

    As stated by Smallie, this local issue has absolutely nothing to do with the administration. But since you asked, here's a few of the NONPAID VOLUNTEERS that are bailing out because they've not been spoken to since the new admin arrived. "Nearly all of the seats on the U.S. National Park Service advisory board are vacant following a mass resignation Monday night, with ex-members citing Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's unwillingness to meet with them." The board had repeatedly tried and failed to secure a meeting with the new interior secretary."[Our] requests to engage have been ignored and the matters on which we wanted to brief the new Department team are clearly not part of the agenda," the letter reads.Alaska Public Radio quoted Knowles as saying that the Department of the Interior "showed no interest in learning about or continuing to use the forward-thinking agenda of science, the effect of climate change, protections of the ecosystems, education.""And it has rescinded NPS regulations of resource stewardship concerning those very things: biodiversity loss, pollution and climate change," he added.

Add the complete disdain for Parks to our current leadership's "concern" for environment and you have a group of people erasing decades of progress which I would think someone who cares about fishing and nature would be worried about. EPA head Scott Pruitt was just asked on CBS if the EPA was supposed to protect the environment or business interests: "Neither" was his reply. Anyway, back on topic, Steam Powered Aero Plain is my favorite John Hartford song.

    Perhaps in other assignments, but the Nat Park Advisory board is a bipartisan group of academics, not just a buffoon with donor money being tossed in a position of extreme importance who has no right to be seated (see Secretary of Education). These are all highly educated, experienced, qualified people who were volunteering their expertise. They've been ignored by Zinke since day 1. If you think this is 'draining the swamp' I think you're off-base...
