I know I shouldn't be thinking about winter fishing...but I can't help it. Is a guy allowed to drive snowmobile on all of the lakes that are motorized in the BWCA? If so, then what are the rules for snowmobiling on the Canada side?

Snowmobiles are NOT allowed to drive on all of the lakes that are motorized in the BWCAW. I believe there is a very limited area that they are allowed to use. The best thing to do would be to check with the U.S. Forest Service office in the area you are considering going into. Also if you went into Canada you would need a RABC permit and a liscense if you were going to fish on that side of the border.

The only area inside the BWCA that I know of where you can take a sled is Sag and you have to stay on the snowmobile corridor. If you go into Canada you'll need RABC.

Something new is the I-68 US Customs Permit. Theres a thread going already, if you Click Here you can find more info on it.

Thanks guys. I've snowmobiled Lac la Croix in the winter and then walked into the American side to fish. Do you know if a guy can snowmobile anywhere on the Canadian side or do they have regulations against that too?

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
