I am heading up over M.E.A. week with the kids to pull in the sisters dock. I was wondering if anyone has any information on rice/round lake just west of cr48,north of cr19,northwest of moose lake. Looks good on google earth but not sure how a person gains access to the lake. I looked on the d.n.r. web page but it doesnt show an access to the lake. We do hunt on Grave lake but it is very slow every year. Usually lucky to pick up 1 duck. It is the only weekend we go up til Nov. deer hunting. We hunt/fish all weekend for ducks/grouse and deer.

Maybe someone has some other ideas of areas we should concentrate on for ducks or grouse.

Thanks,

Ron

Ron,

That's a refuge, no hunting there, but it hold tons of ringies, so any of the lakes around there may be good, but I've never hunted that area. Birds are few and far between in this area, unless you're getting off road and back in the hiding spots.

Ron,

One lake that we have seen many ringers and mallards on is Zinny Lake just west of Bowstring off the Alder Road. It can be spotty, but with the weather moving in, it may be worth a look. It is a little work to get to the water, and there is a logging road on the south side. The river is just south a couple hundred yards. I never have had good luck on Graves for ducks, except for the local mallards and woodducks early. Local beaver ponds usually hold the best numbers, but a alot of work to get to. Hope this helps and we will be up there for deer season as well. Good Luck.

You are breaking my heart telling me these things. I have two kids in hockey now and have pretty much hung up the waders for the year. It is getting ridiculous starting hockey this early and running through March for the little kids. 6 months for the hockey season is a little much for 6-8 year olds. I am seeing the ducks fly over every night and just wish I could get after them one more time yet this year. Oh well. Good Luck to you over MEA up north.

I have a son with one year left in hockey(Senior). A daughter with 2 years left in gymnastics(Junior). It is tough with the sports all year. I will lt you know how it went when we get back.

I looked zinny up on maps I have. Do you get to the lake on the logging road? Or do you go down/up the river?

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
