Snow on Ice?

12 posts in this topic

How much snow is on the ice now (Gull, NL, Round) (I realize it's snowing now too). Is ATV travel still decent if you're not doing long runs?

Thanks all!

Hey Tahoe, seems your asking for lakes around brainerd?  I am not certain on ice travel conditions on those lakes.  Although there should be plenty loose snow for sleds, but we have getting snow every day since sunday.

 

Leech last weekend you could get around quite easily with whatever mode of transportation you chose.

Thanks for the update ANYFISH2.  I plan on heading up to the east side of leech this weekend.  Do you think there is still a possibility of getting around with a truck after the snow fall this week?

I not real sure how much snow the leech area recieved.

If it is like what we got in the Randall/Lincoln area, 4-6 inches, travel should still be good. although i would bet there will be some deep drifts in areas to watch for.

Was on Leech this weekend out of Trappers landing. Pretty slushy now but you should be able to get around most anywhere. There are still some deeper drifts and ice heaves to watch out for but we made it out to Huddle's reef with no issues pulling a 22' tandem.

Are you able to get around on most lakes in the area with a truck?? Coming up for some lake hopping this weekend.

I would think so still, most of the slush is frozen up now. You might break through in some spots where the melted water hasn't frozen completely though. Just be cautious as always and give the lake a good survey before you head out.

I'd say yes. Temps have finally dropped. Things should be mostly froze by now I would think.

If your going out of Trappers watch out for the spot behind pipe island on the road... There's no cones or anything I put my chisel right through the center of it and felt bottom...Hug the right side...Couldn't believe there wasn't anything marking it.

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        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
