Rice/Round lake

7 posts in this topic

I am heading up over M.E.A. week with the kids to pull in the sisters dock. I was wondering if anyone has any information on rice/round lake just west of cr48,north of cr19,northwest of moose lake. Looks good on google earth but not sure how a person gains access to the lake. I looked on the d.n.r. web page but it doesnt show an access to the lake. We do hunt on Grave lake but it is very slow every year. Usually lucky to pick up 1 duck. It is the only weekend we go up til Nov. deer hunting. We hunt/fish all weekend for ducks/grouse and deer.

Maybe someone has some other ideas of areas we should concentrate on for ducks or grouse.

Thanks,

Ron

Ron,

That's a refuge, no hunting there, but it hold tons of ringies, so any of the lakes around there may be good, but I've never hunted that area. Birds are few and far between in this area, unless you're getting off road and back in the hiding spots.

Ron,

One lake that we have seen many ringers and mallards on is Zinny Lake just west of Bowstring off the Alder Road. It can be spotty, but with the weather moving in, it may be worth a look. It is a little work to get to the water, and there is a logging road on the south side. The river is just south a couple hundred yards. I never have had good luck on Graves for ducks, except for the local mallards and woodducks early. Local beaver ponds usually hold the best numbers, but a alot of work to get to. Hope this helps and we will be up there for deer season as well. Good Luck.

You are breaking my heart telling me these things. I have two kids in hockey now and have pretty much hung up the waders for the year. It is getting ridiculous starting hockey this early and running through March for the little kids. 6 months for the hockey season is a little much for 6-8 year olds. I am seeing the ducks fly over every night and just wish I could get after them one more time yet this year. Oh well. Good Luck to you over MEA up north.

I have a son with one year left in hockey(Senior). A daughter with 2 years left in gymnastics(Junior). It is tough with the sports all year. I will lt you know how it went when we get back.

I looked zinny up on maps I have. Do you get to the lake on the logging road? Or do you go down/up the river?

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
