My husband and I are doing a trip through Wolf Lake, Sturgeon River, Halleck, Laura Lake. Wondering how the water levels are doing now?

Thanks!

I flew over Wolf L. yesterday it looks to be normal, however Dewdney L. which is just north of Wolf is very low and it's not a controlled lake to my knowledge, there seems to be no ryhme nor reason to a lot of the lake levels this year.

It seems to me that water levels are normal with a few exceptions. Not just in Temagami, but most other places in Ontario as well. Hopefully all our fears from 3-4 months ago did not come true.

Spring in APP we had normal water levels.
I was in QE2W last weekend and they have record high water, cottagers had to raise their docks.

Are the low waters only being reported on hydro controlled waters?

Great news about the Sturgeon! That's what we were concerned about (i.e., following advice from trip notes).

Thanks, ya'll.

From other places I've inquired, it sounds like the further N you go the worse it gets. Reports from record high water to record low water, with the lows starting around North Bay latitude.
