Itasca County has imposed no-wake zones on the Mississippi rivier, including Pokegama. And yesterday the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office issued a request for all boaters to consider the area 300 feet from any shoreline on all area waterways as no wake zones, in order to minimize shoreline erosion.
Several roads in the Waskish area have also been closed because of flooding from the Tamarack River.
