Where does the driving situtation stand?

Recommended Posts

Where are we as far as driving full size vehicles? There is very little conversation on this matter. One road about 1 1/2 miles out. Is that it? I may have missed some postings. Please help out by providing latest updates. It's a four hour trip for us. We would love to participate. But given the amount of equipment we have I need to use my own transportation. All I have is a truck. Sorry about the Whine! Weather is frustrating!! frown.gif

I think those in the know are waiting to see what last night and tonight do to the ice thickness. They will post as soon as they know for sure.

I have fished Winnie several times in the past few weeks and have yet to see a truck go on it. There was about 14+ inches on the humps last weekend but still no vehicles. I have heard that they are letting extra water out of the dam and that between the rivers there is only 8 inches of ice. That is definately a concern for resort owners. I can't really see why nobody is driving on the south end...that should be safe. I have not been down there, but it is a long way from the rivers. Anyway, I would say a snowmobile is your best bet; especially after the 10 inches of snow we got last Saturday. Hope this helps.

Thanks Extreme. No Sled. We'll see how the ATV does. I hear that they are doing some plowing so that should help.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
