Ice conditions around Lake park

11 posts in this topic

Has anyone been out or heard of how much ice there is around Lake Park? I am looking to head to Big C or Leif Lake on Sunday just to get out of the house. But I have a feeling all of this snow is going to really mess up our ice.

I am guessing that Lief would be better than Big C. Sounded like Big C was still open a few days ago.

Rosco P Coaltrain --

You had better plan on Lief. Big C is way behind. I am there are spots you can try, but what about the spots you can't see? No Lief would be better.

No fishing on Boyer yet either. We will see if somebody goes out there this weekend. Nothing going on Silver either.

Not the best Lake Park report. I am sure Labelle would be fine.

BTW -- a Buddy told me that he was out with his wheeler on Saturday on Lief and he found a lot of variable depths. So be careful!!!

Out on Boyer on Wed. Ice was a good 5-8 depending on the area...snow made it difficult for travel though, went anywhere from ankle high to just above my knees. Slow day of fishing but the ice is good for it!

I grew up in Lake Park, just curious on LaBelle? Is this lake still hitting for walleyes?

Labelle is very hit and miss. Nice pan fish but they tend to bite late in the evening and after dark.

The eyes are very slow. But when you get one it is nice..

Went out on Boyer on Sunday and it was BRUTAL all around. Incredibly cold and poor fishing (4 small perch between the two of us). Ice depth was about 7 inches 100 feet from shore, with some thinner areas here and there. Be Careful. Slush on top of the ice made for a sodden and hard-going hike.

Good luck to the fellas that tried to pull a 8x10 permanent house across the lake with snowmobiles.

Thanks to Dahitman for the Labelle info. Keep on!

Todd --

I will try and talk to some people about Labelle -- the buddy that usually fishes there is not there yet, but I will keep my ears open.

      What do you think Smurfy? No answer maybe we better send out a search party.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
