How has the fishing been on BSL, and slabs CK and how thick is the ice? Also, has anyone been out snowmobiling? Any grooming going on in the park yet? Thanks,

I can give a partial update. My buddy talked to Willey's yesterday. 10" of snow and 4" more coming yesterday. Some more later this week also. Not sure if the trails are groomed but sounds like there is plenty for riding.

BSL's ice is weak due to the snow cover and improper freeze. Sleds are riding along the edges of the lake though, just to get around.

Here is what the DNR website for Savanna says...

10+ inches of snow on the ground this morning. Still trying to dig out. We should be out packing ski trails tommorrow. The snowmobile trails will most likely need to freeze down a little more before the Snowmobile Clubs can start to groom. The spruce bogs are still easily broken through with heavy equipment.

      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:
