Snow

Riders, We got the snow last night that we were expecting. I would guess from 3 to 4 inches fell and the riding for the weekend should be quite good. The groomer will be out and get things all shaped up today. Happy New Year Fishkab

How much total snow, do you think you have up there?

Has anybody been on the Chain of Lakes trail? is it really rough?

Mn Mike, I would say that we have at least 12 -15 inches of snow in the woods. It is snowing again right now with more forecast for the weekend. The trail conditions appear to be very good. The groomers are out and doing a good job. I am not sure if the Chain trail is open. That would depend on the ice conditions on those lakes. I will let you know as soon as I find out. There would be plenty of snow to ride the trail that is for sure. Fishkab

The chain of lakes trail is presently closed, as the park is quite short staff for another week. Usually they send a crew in there to remove blowdown, check the marsh areas and then open the trail. I'm sure the snow cover is adequate, and we expect another blast of good cold weather starting tomorrow as well as a good shot at some more snow late today and overnight.

Overall things are shaping up real well.


Good luck everyone. guts

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
