Plowing Buffalo Lake

7 posts in this topic

I've been fishing on buffalo lake the past couple days and pulling the portable through that snow is just terrible. Does anyone know if somebody will plow a road out there the ice is plenty thick?

Is there any road at all plowed out there. I was planning on going tonight.

Not really there are tire tracks going out from the sturgis park launch but thats it. The tracks dont go out very far either. If your going to try it you need 4 wheel drive for sure.

That is what I am thinking, I have 4wd and have made it out in conditions like this before, but I do not want to get stuck out there.

well I ventured out off of sturgis launch yesterday and it didn't work so well I got stuck about 80 yards out but luckily got it off... Just gonna have to wait for the snow to melt I guess...

I dont know you'd be able to make it out a little ways atleast off of the sturgis park launch but I got stuck in my 4 wheel drive, my buddy had to help push me out. There are tire tracks but the problem is getting turned back around.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
