west arm...
i didn't mean to offend anyone , my family has a cottage up that way and yes there is potential of flooding as well where we are. ( callendar way )
but from who we talked to the west end of the lake was much worse due to the winds pushing water that way more than the east end.

you asked " just curious?"
yes i was just curious that why i asked if any locals had any insight on the east end of the lake. - i read this article different and this was directed at the west end towards sturgeon river.
my apologies if i offended you with my curiosity.


i am fully aware of the severity and the loss that this brings.

no no dan, absolutely wasn't referring to you in any way shape or form, I was referring to the article, when I said just curious it was in respect to the article saying "they should be doing so without causing a wake" I meant just curious of how you operate a boat without a wake?

you have no need to apologize it must have been my wording that was wrong, I will edit it. cheers and sorry for the confusion.

I edited it dan, now the just curious is where it should be in response to the article. I just think the water is so high EVERYWHERE that boaters should respect peoples property, my rant had nothing to do with you, just to the article and the fact that there are some folks who care only about their personal enjoyment and zero about damages they are doing. I know there are the vast majority of us that are respectful but like everything all it takes is a few or in this case one.

Water level sure is rising. They opened the portage dam more yesterday and the French River is now flowing 600 cubic meters per second now. 1000 liters in a cubic meter which ends up being 51,840,000,000 liters a day! Yep trillion. That is a big number to me but the level is still going up.
Lots of damage happened already.

Rain today and more in the forecast for Tuesday.

Still two years in the historical records where the lake was higher. One was about 130mm higher and the other was about 180mm higher. I am really hoping we don't set a new record.

A mating pair of mergansers and a couple great blue heron are the only thing fishing out front of my place. They are doing quite well too. I have seen an eagle grab a dead fish out front of our place and the resident osprey flying over with a couple fish.

My backyard is like an aquarium. Frogs mating, pike mating and at least 20 turtles in the backyard daily, plus ducks, occasional loon. Crazy year....

Hear you.... with the largest snowpack in 25 or more years dissipating all at once courtesy of a monster spring rain over 3 or 4 days....its not great for anyone with places on water..I hope the damages are repairable and not to costly...

Its tough all over the river systems in the east

Ottawa is in tough
Montreal is in tough
Toronto Island (not that I care about those squatters) are in tough.

Hope this gets the folks who manage water levels and dam flow rates back to the table to see what can be done.... Refreshing to glance through a series of posts without a single mention of climate change being the root cause of this.... Cuz its not.
