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.

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.

      I got the Polluted From my own observation.  The North Branch of the Sunrise River, At least the part that Runs though The town of  North Branch, Isn't the healthiest.  I Walked by the river in a small park. The River was full of peoples Trash.  Like Washer Machines  and trash bags. People Trash Either ran into the river, or People just dump their trash their.

      I don’t know who told you the sunrise river is polluted. Aside from a little bit of run off and algae blooms, the river is quite clean. The lower river is a popular summer float tubing spot. Come duck season, it will seem like the whole east metro is packed into Carlos Avery.
