Lake ice is still safe. We plan to fish at least another week.
We will be using the Graceton Beach access directly on the lake this week. No more travel is advised on the river and by the weekend we will be traveling out of Graceton Beach instead of Four Mile Bay. Safety first! The Adrian’s road access is closed today and yesterday to heal. The plan is to open back up on Thursday. Contact Adrian’s Resort for the latest information. Forecast looks much cooler this week. Highs in the thirties and lows in the lower twenties. Nice freezing weather at night. Our last day of ice fishing will beTuesday, March 24. We have house rentals open every day except Saturday right now. Lodging available any day.
Fishing has been hit or miss. Mix of walleyes, saugers and a few perch and northern pike. Jigging using pink, gold or plain hooks tipped with a minnow has worked the best in array of depths, 17’-22’ and 26’-32’. Tip – Try one rod hugged close to bottom and the other a few inches off bottom and see what works best for you.
Nice walleye and perch!

Venturing out on your own?
