In the paper the dnr said yes you can still have camp fires. But I would ask a fire warden in your area to make sure.

Would that be an attended fire or unattended one?

Don't walk away for even a few minutes...

If your heading up by us the answer would be no fires even contained. They are saying to be careful with camp stoves. Its a red flag around here almost daily and as you probably know the Gunflint Trail has a huge fire going.

Check with the DNR in the area your going to.

In nw wisconsin,there is a fire ban. No camp fires, no outdoor grilling, no outdoor smoking, no atvs, no chain saws. With a hefty fine if caught doing so. Atleast that was from the last 2 weekends I have been up there, dont know if they lifted it yet, but with the temps we are having I dont think they did?

Depends on where you will be. In the area described below you can't even burn charcoal for grilling.

Additional Burning Restrictions Imposed (2007-05-06)

Further burning restrictions from the Department of Natural Resources will go in place for Cook, Lake and that portion of St. Louis county north of County Rd 16 on Monday, May 7 at 8:00 am.

Under these more restrictive restrictions the following are prohibited: No burning permits will be issued except for special exceptions issued by State or Federal agencies having suppression responsibilities.

Recreational fires are not allowed, except gas and propane fired camp stoves, grills or similar devices. No charcoal permitted.

No welding, acetylene torches or other devices with open flame allowed in forested areas except under special permits.

Use of fireworks and explosives in municipalities will be under control of municipalities.

Smoking outdoors is permitted. PLEASE USE CAUTION!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
