Nestor Falls/Sioux Narrows

3 posts in this topic

Anybody been up in this area yet this winter? We're heading there next week and are trying to find out what the ice is like on Whitefish Bay. So far haven't been able to find any ice reports.

Thanks for any help or direction to someone/place that would know!

HI F.F.,

THEY ARE FISHING NESTOR FALLS, BUT AS OF LAST WEEKEND, THEY ARE ONLY GOING BY SLED OR 4 WHEELER. CRAPPIE FISHING IS EXCELLENT., AS FOR WHITEFISH BAY, CAN'T HELP YOU THERE, HOWEVER I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT MOST TROUT LAKES DID NOT FREEZE BEFORE ALL THE SNOW WE GOT, BUT NOW HAVE FROZE WHICH COULD MAKE FOR GOOD ICE LATER.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

FF,

I wish I could give you a report first hand, but I have not been able to get out yet.

All reports that I'm getting here at the bait shop and talking to guys fueling their sleds up is that it is very very slushy and the ice is not great. No pickup travel for quite some time, but it is manageable on sleds. This is for the Kenora area of LOTW, and not Whitefish Bay. I'm meeting with a guy later today from Sioux Narrows. I will see if he's been out and about.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
