Periodically I post the water level of Leech Lake measured by my highly unscientific method of seeing how many cement pilings of my boat ramp are under water.
On Friday, May 27, 2011, seven (7) of the pilings were completely covered with water with the waves lapping up on piling number eight.
The highest I've seen the water level on Leech Lake was nine (9) pilings covered. The lowest I've seen is none of the pilings in the water. Based on the high and low of what I've seen in the past six years or so, the water level is above average on this date.
