How are conditions on Melissa or Sallie. I have a wheeler and would like to go out from the public access to tip up fish Northerns.

Thanks

I've been driving on Melissa for a week now. There are two main trails to follow that allow for easy driving. If you are heading cross country, there are scattered slush pockets. I'm not sure on Sallie, but they are similar bodies of water just not seeing a lot of fishing traffic.

Dont have an ice report for you but on Sallie on New years day " third person report", they were nailing nice sized northerns all day long. Didnt get enough info to tell you where on the lake or what they were using but they had a lot of fun.

I had 10" of clear ice on Sallie a couple of weeks ago, and areas with bad slush. It might have cleared up a bit, but I imagine there is still some slush out there. I haven't seen any vehicle traffic out on Sallie yet, other than sleds and ATVs.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
