Ice Fishing in the BWCA

If the temperature was a bit warmer there might be more people out and about in the Boundary Waters ice fishing. There is good ice on most of the lakes in the BWCA including Saganaga. I didn’t venture out onto Sag but cabin owners were up on the Canadian side of Sag this past weekend and made the first tracks through the Sag corridor. Once they make a good trail and people travel over it, it will freeze over, get hard and prevent slush from developing. Normally the cabin owners will mark it with pine boughs so people know where to ride.

There are plenty of lakes to choose from if someone wants to venture into the sub-zero temperatures and wet a line. Me? I’ll wait til it warms up just a little bit.
