We were there past weekend. went out of springsteel. saw a number of pickups on the ice (even had one at wisky flats). The access at springsteel was still decent and should still be good for a few more days. They had more snow than i expected. 4 wheeler travel is possible, but it'd be tough going in many places. Snomobiles would be the way to go. I'll be up there Wed-Sun myself. Planning on using snomobiles ourselves since we like to travel and search. Good luck. Taz

I was up last weekend, and you could drive pick-up.Fishing for northerns was tough for us again been up 4 times now and all have been tough. Last year we did good all 6 trips with 2 being very good. I don't know whats different this year,just can't get into them,but I'll be up this weekend trying again. Good place to spend Easter with the family(on the ice.)

We went out from springsteel and ice was in great shape last saturday, northern fishing wasnt producing "for second weekend in a row" so we jummped on the sleds and ran out to 16 mile and got two limits of nice 16" to 18" walleye and some very nice sauger largest being 16", Im headin out again this weekend for the last hurah. temps are on the rise this week but id be more worried about the access than the lake.

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
