Fish lake driving

6 posts in this topic

I was thinking of trying fish lake out this weekend and was just wondering what the best access on the lake is and the condition of roads. Is the majority of this lake safe to drive on?(any danger spot)

Thanks for the help!

You will get some good advice some time today on this. I myself have not been up there yet this year. I was also thinking of going on Sunday. From what I have read on this forum. staying on the main trails will be OK. Driving off to small bays with deep snow could be a problem.

Well there is HI-banks resort which could give you good info about driving out and will have decent roads. Then there is the public access which does have some paths from snowmobile/4wheeler traffic and whatever anybody plowed with vehicles. Stay away from the dam if you go over to the public access.

There on trucks all over the ice on fish lake, you can acess the lake by the dam, just keep the left, you will see all the cars and trucks out there

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
