I have not fished it much in the winter. I do get out a few times on the open water. Great pike population but not sure if they are as aggressive during the winter as summer. If they are you should see a lot of flags. Good panfish population as well. Good luck

was at minnewashta yesterday,, the ice is solid but there are some shakey slushy spots where you break through down to about 2-3 inches of ice.

fished tipups, it was slow, there was a couple others panfishing and i didnt see anyone pull anything up.

the water was clear though

how clear is the water.

Is the only landing off of hwy 41?

As far as I know the only legal access would be from Minnewashta regional park off of hwy 41. The park has two boat launches. Many folks also park on the point, or "the beach," and then walk out.

I have never seen much VEHICLE traffic off of the big launch during ice season. Must be some notorious bad ice on that side of the lake.

from what i can tell the water is pretty clear.

there is a place to get in on the west side of the lake i think it is called minnewashta blvd or something like that, it is a a road just west of 41 that connects hwy 5 to hwy 7 it runs the lakeshore on the west side of the lake.

No PUBLIC access to Washta from Minnewashta blvd. There is access to lake St. Joe from the blvd.

Is it one of the private beaches maintained by one of the Lake Minnewashta housing associations?

It would be sweet if their was still a public access on that side of the lake. Used to be a resort/bait shop that allowed access over there. That was turned into residential houses years ago.

It is a public access. Fishing pier sits there in the summer. You can park west of Minnewashta Pkwy and have to cross it to get to the lake.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
