Ice fishing continues to be very good. On the south shore fishing Big Traverse Bay, nice mix of walleyes and saugers in 20 - 28'. Varying ice conditions all over the lake so please go through a resort and use the ice roads as they are checked daily and groomed for smoother travel. Some ice roads allowing 1/2 ton trucks. Most resorts update Facebook pages for current info or call ahead. Water clarity is good. Some days jigging line is hot, some days dead stick with a plain hook / minnow. Gold, glow, and pink are good colors. Try a rattle if fish not reacting. Auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.

The Rainy River is ice covered with a few local fish houses here and there, but overall, with current of the river, we suggest working through resorts for safety. The majority of the resorts fish the lake.

The NW Angle has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has started out excellent. Walleyes in 22-26' with mixed in saugers, pike and perch. Resorts are guiding anglers to big crappie on the Ontario side of lake. Snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point on south shore to NW Angle is marked.
