Knife lake

3 posts in this topic

Is anyone driving out on Knife lake yet? We want to head up there Sunday. Might have to walk out from the cabin.

Ron, I was there last weekend. Ice conditions where I was on the west side of main lake was 8"-10" of good clear ice with 2"-3" of slush on top of that and about 8" of snow.

Like a lot of lakes this year the weight of the early snow pushed down on the ice and water came up through the cracks causing a layer of slush. Talked to a couple people and the ice thickness varies around the lake from as much as 12" to as little as 4" frown.gif

I was on foot so no problem, mostly ATV's and snowmobiles out there. I did see one full size pick-up truck over by the group of fishhouses out from the access on 65.

I personally would not drive a vehicle on the lake yet.

Good Luck. Dave

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
