Leech Lake Ice?

7 posts in this topic

Was wondering how thick ice is? Planning to come up on feb. 8th. Need to know if I have to get an extension for my auger or not. Any info would help? Thanks.

I was fishing in Walker bay on Sat, moved around to about 3 places, I'd say it was an average 17-18 inches in the spots I fished.

Good luck!

Saw people driving just about everywhere in Walker Bay, I can't comment much on the rest of the lake we have a place on Pine point and there were a few driving on Traders but majority of traffic was sleds and wheelers.

We fished Walker Bay Monday & Tuesday and found 24” to 28” of ice when we drilled. Depth depends on the amount of snow cover. We drove an

SUV without problems, except for getting stuck in the snow once. There were quite a few others driving as well.

Fished the main lake earlier in the week, west shore at the south end, and found 18” to 20”. I traveled with a four wheeler on the big lake.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
