Lower Eau Claire and Minong Flowage Construction Updates

Lower Eau Claire and Minong Flowage Construction Updates

dam 1 dam 2

As of September 4, Mooney Dam is still under repairs. (This dam is located at the outlet of Lower Eau Claire Lake.) Although the above sign pretty much tells the story, I want to emphasize that the boat landing IS open weekends and evenings during construction. Also noteworthy: because the repairs are being completed behind temporary coffer dams, it hasn’t been necessary to draw down the water levels on Middle Eau Claire Lake.

It looks as though repairs are well underway.


But anyone using this picnic site over Labor Day weekend will need to share…

And a backhoe is still parked across the road. Apparently there’s some digging left to be done.


Meanwhile, over on the Minong Flowage, the Smith Bridge Road bridge replacement is also progressing nicely.

bridge 3


Work began in July, and is expected to be complete in late October.


If you’re one of those skeptics tempted to drive around the sign that says “Bridge Out,” don’t do that. They’re not kidding. But if all goes well, the new one should be finished in another six or eight weeks.

The Channel Between Middle Eau Claire Lake and Lower Eau Claire Lake, Barnes, WI

The Channel Between Middle Eau Claire Lake and Lower Eau Claire Lake, Barnes, WI

This is the second in an occasional series of blog posts answering an important question: “Sure, the map shows a connection between those lakes. And the fishing guidebook says there’s a ‘navigable channel.’ But can I really get there from here?”

If you’re interested in getting around on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes, be sure to also check out my post, The Secret Passageway from Bony Lake to Middle Eau Claire Lake. And if you’re looking for a lake home or cabin in the area, please check out my current listings on Bony Lake and on Lower, Middle, and Upper Eau Claire Lakes.

As always… Keep your speed down, and proceed with caution. The first part of this channel is navigable by canoe, kayak, small to medium boat, and even most pontoons. But just upstream of Lower Eau Claire Lake, you’ll come to a miniature lock-and-dam that’s only large enough for canoes, kayaks, and small fishing boats. (If you’re in a canoe or kayak, it’s also an easy portage.)

The channel leading from Middle Eau Claire Lake to the lock-and-dam, however, is long enough so it’s worth exploring in larger boats. A fortunate few are able to live along this quiet backwater, where they can still enjoy easy access to 804-acre Middle Eau Claire Lake and 776-acre Lower Eau Claire Lake. At the moment, I have a great building site available along this stretch of the river.

So here it is… The no-longer-secret passageway from Middle Eau Claire Lake to Lower Eau Claire Lake, complete with photos. Some stretches are shallow, so proceed with caution.

Starting from the west side of Middle Eau Claire Lake, head into the outlet shown at the beginning of this post. Continue downstream, but keep your speed down. Watch for the River Road bridge. It’s high enough for most boats to pass under with no problem—just make sure you’ve lowered your pontoon awning. Next the river widens out again before narrowing once more just above the hand-operated lock-and-dam located at South Shore Road.

The lock itself is about six feet wide and thirty feet long. If your boat won’t fit, and if it’s too heavy to portage up and over South Shore Road, then it’s time turn around. Otherwise, from here it’s just a short distance downstream to Lower Eau Claire Lake.
