I’m thinking of trying fishing on crystal bay on Minnetonka, but I don’t see any public access to it. Is there a way to drive on to crystal bay ?

There is not a public access directly located on that particular bay.  You could access it from another bay and then travel over to it.  I would be very cautious about driving a car through a channel though.  There is current there and all the salt from the bridge above gets plowed onto the ice there.  Lots of cars go through those channels.

Isn't there still a winter only access on the west bay of Crystal a little east of the channel into North Arm?

Yes, there used to be anyway.

Absolutely, DO NOT drive a vehicle under any of the bridges/channels on Minnetonka.  These spots have very thin ice. Some of them I wouldn't even walk through yet alone drive through.  Already two vehicles down this year from attempting this.

      I just drove by the chain and can second that!!!!!!! in cold spring there was a sheriffs deputy and a cold spring officer on the old railroad bridge. the deputy looked like he had some type of gadget in his hand. water was really pouring over that dam.  with the news that Antons got evacuated last nite with a full house i'm sure everyones on full flood alert!!!

      I would say its over around my area. We tried to get on numerous lakes yesterday with hip boots and broke through all the edges. still ice out there once you reach it but  Things are going fast. Water is riseing fast. the hwy 22 access is completely flooded and gaining elevation by the minute.  Might make a few Northwest runs yet but locally I wont be takeing the risk anymore been a weird year but honestly i'm ready for the long rods to come out!

      Sounds like several lakes are experiencing winter kills in the Wilmar area this year.  The extent of the kill isn't clear yet but Big Kandi has had some walleye mortality, Lillian appears to have had a significant die off with dead jumbo perch in the shallows, Kasota and Wakanda have a bunch of dead eyes showing up in creeks.  I'd be surprised if it isn't more wide spread than these lakes.

      We were gathering sap yesterday and it was almost knee deep. Areas getting more sun have a foot. Getting through the ditch was hell.
