Ice on East Rush?

9 posts in this topic

Does any one know how much ice is on East Rush Lake. I have a summer cabin on the east shore and want to get up there to do some ice fishing.

Do you know how much ice is out there. Where is every one fishing and is any thing biting? Me and my girl friend might come up there next Tuesday and try our luck.

I fished East Rush all day last Sunday, found 6 to 8 inches everywhere I went. Walked on from the resort to the south end and worked my way back during the day.

I was out tonight and it was freezing. anyways there was about 8-10 inches now. It has really been making ice. We caught a few eyes but most were pretty small. anyways let me know if you guys find some bigger ones.

Has any one been driving cars out there yet. Where has every one been fishing? There are usually people on the south end and the east side.

I've never fished east rush. Any pointers on where a guy might start looking for crappies or eyes? Thanks!

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
