Clear Lake is Froze Over Today!

Recommended Posts

Fisherman For a Lifetime

Clear Lake right next to I-35 in Forest Lake is frozen over today.

Keep bringing on the cold & we'll be out there soon...

It looks like it's about 60% froze over. I bet by mid week it's iced over.

Is there any public access to Clear other than the public landing? Is there access near the point after the lake is frozen?

Hookitguy, Ashbach Point is all private. There are three other access points to Clear Lake that are city-owned public property, but they are tough to find without knowing the area.

FYI- The area around Ashbach Point stayed ice-free for a long time last winter, so be cautious in this area during first ice.

Thanks for the info. Would a lake map have any of the other access points?

I drove by Clear around 11:30am today and it was at least 70% open water and quite wavey so it is going to be a while before we are out there fishing on the ICE....

Forest - Lake 1 was mostly frozen today at 1:30, which means that Clear Lake will freeze over as soon as the wind goes down.

Hookitguy, sorry but the lake maps do not show the other access points since they are not DNR launches.

Back and forth. I wish that lake would make up it's mind!

It's been getting pretty cold at night, but the weekend is calling for snow. Hopefully we don't get too much.

Hi so haaad,

Could you possibly send me the other access points?

I'll in turn give you some local or Big Winnie hot areas in return.

Thanks very much...

It's been very quiet on both Clear and FL this week. I think a lot of people heard the report about the knucklehead snowbiler on Coon, and now with the snow we are getting people are respecting the thin ice a little bit more. I'll try to give a tape-measured report tomorrow.

I've been wanting to get out there too, but I just don't know yet. According to the posts above, I guess it kept freezing and opening back up. I don't think it was completely frozen over for more than a day or two before it snowed and that was only 4 days ago. With the snow cover I'm sure ice production has slowed down quite a bit.

I'd be interested in finding out when it's possible to make it out to the weedline.

Hi So haaad,

Hi Tim,

Just got your email. I guess my email service thought our talk about fishing was worthy of the "junk" folder. Fish talk should never be considered to be "junk"! smile.gif

Hope you found the info useful. Let me know if you need help finding them, and I can help you out...

You are the 2nd one today (!) that had my e-mail in their junk folder - what the ... confused.gifmad.gif

I'm not too up on Flake & Clear, but I know the St. Croix real well if you need something for the spring & summer.

Try Big Winnie sometime - hit that spot & you could be rewarded...!

Good luck on Clear everyone!!

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
