Cautionary high water warning

Starting June 19, 2014, The Itasca County Sheriff’s Office began posting “No Wake” signs on all public accesses to Pokegama Lake, Jay Gould Lakes and the Mississippi River, per Minnesota State Statute 86B.313 Subd. 9. Due to high water levels, law enforcement will be patrolling all area lakes to address the no wake issue.

The no wake rule will be strictly enforced by area law enforcement for the safety of recreationists and property owners. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Itasca County Sheriff’s Office at 218-326-3477.
