Wildwood: Water level at back end.

Recommended Posts

This post was prompted by a PM on another board & a couple of people showing up at the back end of Wildwood on Monday looking to launch a canoe. The area of Wildwood designated for no gas motors has very low water levels. Hoping this post will stop some from a wasted trip.

Off the main creek channel here you will be lucky to find 2' of water. Water levels will only drop further.

 

Best Wishes: Rick

This may be a stupid question, but, do you suppose all the fish are just packed into wherever there's a bit of deep water? If you could get to wherever that might be, could you potentially be in for a fun afternoon?

I used to go for a walkabout this time of year at Wildwood. Good for searching stump locations and where the old river channel runs. Maybe even pick up a few lures snagged on down timber and stumps. All the fish are up by the dam now and can be had from shore or boat. Just remember C&R so that there are some left for next year.

      Hi everyone, So this will be my first year with a boat, so excited. I was wondering if any of you can help me out and let me know where on Lake Erie to go for fishing with a little calmer waters? Ill be bringing my kids sometimes so want to be safe. I live near Burlington but willing to drive. Someone told me about a place called Sugarloaf Marina in Port Colborne but I have no idea if it’s any good. Spots that have walleye and bass when season opens up is what I’m l

    • "new" option for water conditions

      You can get water condition updates right to your phone via buoys placed around the Great Lakes right now. Some inland lakes will be getting them in the future. https://glbuoys.glos.us Here is an article about the system: https://www.outdoorcanada.ca/buoyed-for-success/?fbclid=IwAR1HK98VFv29glw79WjfC3qG7Vt7qzTfdi_EZ8WZ8P5epG-9DzxDPW45Eq0

    • Haswing Cayman trolling motor water tested

      For those of us who don't have a couple of grand to sink into a trolling motor may I suggest checking out Haswing trolling motors. As mentioned in my previous report I purchased a 12v, 48" shaft, bow mount with cordless remote, wired foot control and quick release pad for under $600 US on ebay (now about $650 or so). Though it doesn't  have all the bells and whistles of some of the well known name brands such as anchor or auto-tracking my motor performed admirably. Just not having to be physical
