Snow Conditions on the Lake?

11 posts in this topic

I was wondering if someone could give me an update on the snow conditions on the lake. I am planning on coming up tomorrow evening and was wondering if I could leave the snowmobiles at home. I would like to be able to drive out of Stuntz Bay to our cabin which is north of birch island. Do you think this would be possible, or should I plan on dragging the snowmobiles up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I think you should be able to get there if you are driving a 4X4.

There may be a road plowed out past the West end of Birch, with any luck.

Bring a shovel, just in case!

While out searching for an overdue snowmobiler on Saturday night, came across 2 guys shoveling their way from the North side of Ely Island trying to get to Stuntz Bay. They were in a 4 wheel drive Jeep. It was tough going. Someone may have reopened the road by now. Can't say for sure. I would maybe do some more checking before making the final decision.

Thanks for the info guys. I hope that they have opened the road back up, because I think I am still going to give it a try with the truck. I may be the next guy you see trying to dig out!

Thanks Again

I drove up past the trout lake portage today with my truck. Some of the drifts were deep but I didn't have to get out and shovel at all!!!

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
