Thinking about fishing the Glenwood area this weekend? Wondering if Atv travel is the way to go?

I haven't been past Reno lately but I've heard they have been driving on part of the lake with trucks. This is a bit of a surprise because I have also heard from a coworker that lives on the lake that there is open water out there or was within the last week. I would proceed with extreme caution.

Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

The ice around here is extremely unpredictable; 12" here and 6" just a short distance away and even open water. I've seen vehicles out but unless you've checked the ice yourself along the entire path you plan to take, I wouldn't do it.

Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

Ice conditions varied on Saturday. 6" to 12". There is a pressure ridge to look out for. I saw guys with 1/2 ton trucks and fish houses all over. We chose the ATV to get around. Still to early for trucks in my opinion.  We caught fish but definitely had to stay mobile.

Second hand info is saying roughly 14 inches on Reno. But if you look at Koeps bait facebook page, a pickup dropped a tire in over 8 inches of ice. So it is variable, like every other lake I have been on.

 

On Wednesday there were quite a few cars/small SUVs/small pickups on Waska, but did not see any half tons.

      Lots of people fish at Hidden Falls Park. It is currently closed due to high water. Also another place to fish is Crosby Park off of Shepard road under the 35 bridge. Please wait a few weeks until the river goes down.

      I've been trying to find specific info on how the musky population is doing in the chain of lakes. I know they started stocking in 2011 and stock every other year. Anybody have any idea if it's worth trying for them yet?

      I don't want nobody "breaking the seal" in my lake--use your empty Mountain Dew bottle  🤔 (But seriously, I hope the DNR isn't so blinded by the AIS lingo in proposal that they don't seen how blatantly and dramatically it will decrease access...   Furthermore, I can't believe every lake-association isn't watching this intently;  ready to file their own versions as soon as they see what the outcome is...)

      You get the seal and drive away.   Who will break the seal at minnetonka or Mille Lacs or White Bear or Osakis or whatever?   This is the first I heard of this seal business.  I would certainly be interested in how it is supposed to work.      I can imagine how something like this would possibly work but it would need to be a statewide thing, or even multi state.      Right now, I go to the cleaning station and get inspected and get the seal.    Sometime later I show up at an access and they look at my seal to see if I am allowed to launch.   Is that how it works?    Does the seal have a timestamp?   Is the seal where my boat connects to the trailer, so launching boat automatically breaks it?   Somebody has to break it?     So many questions.... And it isn't even a lake where I go....

      ^^ thats what i thought.  Just needed confirmation.  Here is a picture looking East from Nelson landing Monday 3-25 (Not my picture, stolen from Facebook) Shouldn't be too long now.  It seems to always hang up on the final stretch haha!

      Sort of!!?   Spring hockey practice starts April 8th.  5-6 practices for the month only.  BUT, ...April means the start of Travel and JVL baseball as well.     It is turkey season(scouting anyway),  I can work around athletics!

      I wouldn’t turn it down.  That and another burger stop. 😋     Is hockey done now?
