Ice conditions

Recommended Posts

We are going to be in the area this weekend at a friends cabin, just wondering if we can expect to be able to drive on the lakes or not. Big Stony is where we will be. This weekend the ice in the cities was 8"-10" so we are getting close done here. just wondering what you guys are seeing for ice thickness up there.

I'm a little northwest of Park Rapids, we are seeing anywhere from 12-16" on area lakes, depending on which lake, and depth of lake, and other variables of course. Plenty of vehicle traffic, but use caution!!

I live 1/2 mile north of Big Stony and in the area I have seen vehicles on Portage, Fishhook & Potato but as posted about each lake is different. I was on two lakes last Sunday one had 13+ the other only 11" so use caution and check as you go. ATVs you can use just about everywhere. Good Luck!

All the lakes i been on the ice is very good and i'm driving my pickup 1/2 ton. of course you must watch if thier is a river inlet or outlet but i would say all the lakes are good and the way the wheather is going to be this week. so if your not from the area come on up and enjoy our lakes and scenery. oh and by the way the fish are bitting.

How much snow do you guys have on the lake? Might stop at a couple places on the way up to lake of the woods and wondering if a guy can still get around by truck. Especially with this storm that is supposed to come in this week!

Sunday got 4-5" in park rapids and around 8 in lake george. The further north the more snow there is. I was out before that in the pickup and was no where near flooded with about 6-7" of snow and 20" of ice. We are supposed to get 5-8 tonight and 2-4 tomorrow. This sounds like it will be heavier south instead of more up north like last time.

The recent cold snap has put some decent traveling conditions on the lakes but this warm snap will turn that around in a hurry. I would say that lake conditions will worsen pretty quickly before they stabilize.

Keep us posted on the ice conditions in the area grin

How about an update from the Nevis area on ice out on the Crow Wing chain, Mantrap etc if anyone gets a look on the way to work. Thanks!

Mantrap was looking pretty bad yesterday with open spots near shore. The ice is translucent now and we had a good downpour this evening so it won't be long. Went through Osage on Saturday and saw a dozen or so people still fishing straight.
