I have asked a few people to give me a call back to give a report on the ice conditions and roads on Reno but I have not heard from anyone yet. If I get a report, I will post it.

Fish On!

All right...first report in.

Roads are hard packed but rough.

If you get off the roads, there is a lot of slush and you will get stuck. Guy said "the lake is flooded".

This is third party information and not from my personal observation...so hopefully there will be some additional reports from others that have been out there.

Fish On!

The lake is flooded. Fire up your auger and drill down until your about 1/2 way through the ice. Pull out the auger and watch the water flow in like a firehose opened up all the way. Anyway, the landing is a bit rough but easy enough to get on/off. Yesterday morning I drove on with my mini-van pulling a trailer-2 houses and and ATV. We drove out to the first section of houses and the road got really bad. Lots of ruts through lots of snow. We turned around and went back to the landing. Unloaded the gear and pulled it out with an ATV. Once you get past that bad section (about 50 yards) it was plowed/packed/and smooth easy drive. We went out to a little hole about midway across the lake. That one spot was the only bad spot.

Off the roads it is a lot of snow/slush/mess your feet will either be pushing snow into your hole, or you will be standing in water. We tried 2 different spots. First spot was just to the right of the landing and we caught all the tiny little "hybrid tiger walleye" you could care to take off a hook(read little perch wink )

Next we went about 20 yards to the southwest of the end of the road into a 20' hole and did the same thing. All the perch you could care to get. I did get something to come up and grab a pretty big jigging spoon as soon as I dropped it in the water. It spit it out before I got it up onto the ice and I couldn't get any more bites with anything big I threw in the hole.

      So the weeks betwixt point and click and smoke pole deer hunting always have my ire up to get that last Musky Missile into my hands.  Gotta scrub that slime into my glove until next year.  Going to give the Mississippi below Falls a try here in a few hours.   Might find it frozen, might find a spot to get in.   I'll bring my boat because I'm an optimist,  but I'll bet the kayak is where i end up.    Wish me luck, otherwise I have a scheme on my mind for my favorite frozen central mn musky lake.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!
