    Flooded roads south of Ainsworth??

    Anyone know if the road is open yet heading west of highway 7 going to Clear Lake and Willow Lake? How is the trail getting back to Tower Lake south of Ainsworth? Haven't been there since June so I'm hoping I can get to them by now.

    They just received a ton of rain up there. You can’t make it to either lake right now or probably within the next month or two.

      Spoke to a friend up there this morning. Pretty much every county road in Brown and Rock county is flooded and impassable. Water is on most of the highways, including 20 and 183, and fairly deep in some areas. He wasn't sure if the water would go down much as the ground water has been so high this year and they've had water in the ditches and fields all summer.

          Four of us were going to go fish some private lakes south of Bassett this weekend, had to cancel, does not sound good up that way! The ranch where we were going to stay had 8+" of rain in 2 nights.

            Haha, this is funny. I’m from Bassett and going to have to use this one with my buddies from Ainsworth.

              Every county road in Brown and Rock County is closed. These pictures are of Bone Creek at Keller State Park.

                I don’t mean to make light of the dad gum flooding though. Nobody needs that. This whole state has had a hell of a year.

                      Still is, most of the time, until there are several inches of rain that fall in a 48-hour period.

                        Bone Creek washer. I guess we can say this is the new normal. Bomb Cyclone in mid-March was a Cat 3 hurricane that formed over west-central Kansas after trains were tipped over in NM and TX from wind.

                            I was up there last two weekends. Where do you want to go? Dropped some last weekend compared to the 14th. Had to drive through many flooded roads but most are firm bottom with anywhere up to 15 inches of water. Last weekend most were passable.
