tlzkaasen Looks like your Nest webcam is a private one, unless you'd like to give all of us your username and password.... The link does not work for me

Firetiger & others - It would be great to meet a few of you. I'll be up for the opener, but can't make it this weekend.

Headed up this weekend. Will be fishing the dams in the morning and then the lake in the afternoon after the water hopefully warms up a bit for panfish. If anyone wants to meet up, feel free to pm me.

Good luck out there,

Jake

Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 66° - 70° F Water Temp: 46° - 50° F
The water temp is somewhat of a guess. It was posted at the baitshop

Crappie were in off the end of my pier. Filled with spawn... pulled 1/2 dozen in about 45 minutes. All released.

Water temp

I recently installed a remote thermometer, yesterday I had the water temp at 41 degrees, that is surface temp about 5 feet from shore...

Sunny and 70 today, it should warm up quick.

In the last year the lowest the lake has been is around 6 feet below max. The lake has remained at historically high levels for the given date though for the entire Winter through this Spring. Surprising to me, considering the lack of snowfall this past Winter. Looking forward to the opener!

Actually the fluctuation from the beginning of the year was about four feet. You can check this site to satisfy your curiosity on all of the Wisconsin river flowages: http://www.wvic.com/WaterReports/Water_Level_Report.cfm

Water levels have not fluctuated as much this year as most--you can use the same site to look back in history.

Good Morning,

Sorry, I ran out of time yesterday to post. Ice is gone and the my cam shows what looks to be about an inch of snow on the ground. I was up last weekend and probably going back up this weekend to finish a project. Need to get those projects finished prior to opening fishing and good weather!

I agree, the lake is really full. Some serious water level extremes over the past 6 months. That fluctuation must be close to an 8-10 feet difference.

Thanks for the update, Tim. I'm headed up in the morning to apparently play in the snow. Good luck to everyone.

tlzkaasen, I saw on your camera that your bay looks pretty well open. Do you know how the rest of the lake looks by any chance?

Thank you,

Jake

Ice Depth: 20"
biggblokk,

I've owned vacation property on several lakes in the area. #1. You need to understand where you are buying on Nokomis. Nokomis has serious water fluctuation do to the fact it is a reservoir. I can tell you we love the bars, restaurants, ice cream, on Nokomis. Most areas of nokomis are very sandy/rocky. I hate weeds, muck etc. Although on 2900 acres you will find that...don't kid yourself.

The water is dark like most northern WI lakes due to the "tannin" I believe.

Make sure you get an adjustable pier to deal with the water changes.

Good Luck

Hi Guys,

I'm looking at buying property in the area I'm not all that familiar with Lake Nokomis. Can you give me an idea what the lake is like? Water clarity compared to say Minocqua Chain, Squirrel or Squaw lakes? Weeds or weed harvesters? How tight of a squeeze is it to get under L or the Hiawatha Trail bridges? Thanks in advance! Feel free to PM me!
