On the south end… Anglers put away the boats and are looking forward to ice fishing. Ice forming on back bays with 4-8″. Ice also on different parts of the big lake with sections of open water. With the cold snap, things are coming along nicely. When the time is right, resorts will communicate when initial ice accesses will be available. That time is not yet, but it won’t be too long!
On the Rainy River… The river is iced over in most areas with a thin layer of ice over a strong current. Some anglers fished last week with decent success and some big walleyes before the freeze up. With increased current this fall, river ice will be suspect. Back bays iced up.
Up at the NW Angle… Ice is forming throughout the Angle. Some reports around the inlet of good ice forming, but no ice travel is recommended. Most bays and some areas throughout islands iced up. NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.
