Well lets hope the boards go on and we get some rain. That Lake sure drains quick.

Boards are not in still... Grrrrrr id say in the last week it's dropped roughly 1-1.5 feet above the dam. Talked to warden Friday night and he said the boards might not get put in at all. Not a definite but he said anything is possible. Again imo I wish they'd have been put in weeks ago

The waterlevel has been dropping very fast lately but we do have rain on its way for tomorrow. The fishing has been very good. A mixture of game fish and panfish has been very consistent for us lately.

The lake is fine to ski/tube on. Just be smart, its a shallow lake so don't drive close to shore and you'll be fine. I've been doing it for years at every lake level imaginable. Also there isn't a HP limit, I run my 150 here all the time. In tournaments I've seen 250's. Yea it's a shallow lake, you'll have to idle out a ways. But it really is a great water

Just my 2 cents. -Smitty

Waterskied the lake and River for 25 years. Even in its shallowest its 5-6 feet in the West Basin and the East River.

I know of No random sandbars.

The N shore is definitely shallower than South shore though

U can absolutely ski/tube on the west end of the lake its separated into two basins basically west end is where u want to ski/tube. When fishing to get away from tubers/skiers go to east end

There are no restrictions as far as motors on Puckaway.

I got a 18 ft fisher with a 115 and found this lake to be extremely shallow. Lots of sand on bottom. Had to get couple hundred yards out with motor trimmed in order to get to 5 ft of water. I would not tube or ski on this lake or someone can get hurt. The bottom is featureless sand shore to shore. I spent one full day on it and will never go back. And it was free since my friend had a campsite. I wish I had that weekend back so I could have hit some place else. I've been on hundreds of lakes and this one is similar to wheeler lake. Just keep driving, there's better down the rosd.

Can anyone tell me if there are horsepower restrictions on Puckaway? I have an old 90hp on a 15 footer. Just wondering if I need bother bringing it up there on vacation in a couple of weeks.

Looking back through the posts, it looks like the DNR is going to lower the river to essentially remove and replace the dam? They could easily do this without lowering the water level, it probably wouldn't cost too much more either (likely the reason they are stating they need to lower the water level). A contractor could easily drive a sheet pile wall either side of the dam to act as a temporary dam and either repair/build in two stages, or use by-pass pumps/causeway and knock it all out in one shot.

I don't get to fish this lake often, but would hate to see it devastated because the DNR (again) has no idea what they are doing.

Saturday, water was down about 3in. We were still reading 5ft-2 to 5ft-6. I was told that the area received about an inch of rain Sunday. North of Portage got 3/4 to an inch also, so that should help hold the level. Smile
