Trail Conditions

4 posts in this topic

Not sure where I should have posted this (also posted in snowmobile users forum), but am wondering what the trail conditions are like in the Detroit Lakes area? How is the snow holding up? Any in the forecast? Would like to ride over the holidays at my in-laws place. Appreciate any info. Thanks!

Trails are pretty nice in the Hawley-wood area.

I thought I posted this on both forums this morning but I guess it did not work for this one. Here is my report.

I put 247 miles on over the weekend. Trail south of DL (vergas trails) were not groomed as of last friday. Even if they groomed them after friday there is not enought snow to make it enjoyable.

North of DL. Rat lake, Yellow head in great shape but the lakes like Little Bemidji and elbow are horrible. Both have open water and alot of slush. there are signs posted with thin ice. Rock and rice lake seemed OK but still had some slush issues.

SouthWest of DL. Cormorant, Lake Park area seemed pretty good, but beaten due to a weekends worth of riders.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
