Thursday, June 22, 2017:  The spillway at the Mississippi River dam in Brainerd where Potlatch made paper for many years.  
The dam now makes power for the city of Brainerd.

The area is a great spot for fishing.  It is very common to see people trying their luck. bringing in Trout, Bass, and Northern.
This is a peaceful way to spend a few hours away from everyone else.

Less than a half mile from the river is Gilbert Lake, home of Gilbert Lodge.  Plenty of boating activity there.

Paddleboards and kayaks are popular there too.  Nice calm waters without a river current.

Calm waters most of the time, that is.  Jet skis are fun on Gilbert too.

Yes, Gilbert has clean recreational water.

The lake is a favorite spot for fishermen as well.

Quote of the day:    Gilbert has it all.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
