How Much Snow?

Recommended Posts

ottertailguy

How much snow around OT and are the trails going to be open for next weekend ? I'm sure all the 612 boys and girls are interested. We got a foot in St. Michael but the toys are up there. As always, thanks for the 411.

Around Battle Lake I measured 12-14" around the house.

Put on 100 miles on the sleds today...Battle Lake, Leaf Valley, Brandon, Dalton, Underwood and back. Once the groomers get out it will be great. Haven't ridden fresh stuff like this in 10 years.. cool.gif Average depth to the south was about 10".

The wonderful paved trail from Ashby to Dalton was thin in some open stretches from a groomer making an early run...might want to avoid that if the sun shines bright Tues and Wed as predicted. Just a guess as it happened last year...

At least a foot around the Detroit Lakes area. The Lakes-Vergas trails were in pretty good shape this morning, as there wasn't a lot of traffic on the trails yet. I put on about 80 miles this weekend riding in the woods. It was fun blasting through the powder, although in a few spots it was getting a little much already. I'm surprised I didn't get stuck in a few spots, and managed to ride of it. It was awesome riding this weekend but I'm sure the trails will be beat down pretty hard by next weekend unless the groomer gets out...

12" here in Duluth at noon on Sunday might be an inch more or so by midnight. Some busy winds make for some drifting but it is nice to have some snow on the ground. Need that moisture as we are bone dry.

Pavements melted clear in Perham but ditches/trails look great! 10" on the DATA trails in Douglas Cty. 12" or more in the yard ChuckN must have gone right by I'm between Leaf Valley, Millerville, Brandon. Crazy year only one snowmobiler has gone by our house on the DATA trail all year (Sunday morning a loner). Saw lot's of groups riding the ditches but not many on the trails except the paved rail-trail.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.

      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"

      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.
