Sportsman’s Lodge Rainy River ~ South Shore Lake of the Woods

Ice Update ~ Our ice fishing season starts Friday!!!

Great news! The ice is looking great and we more ice in the past 24 hours. Our crew found 6”-8” inches on the Four Mile Bay where we access the lake and 5”-8” on the lake.  It is a little rough but the guides are working hard to get the trail smooth and safe. We will be pulling houses this week and starting our first day of ice fishing on Friday, Dec 16! This report is for the areas we travel and fish. We run a private groomed trail. If you go out on your own, check the Adrian’s road report below or with the outfitter that maintains the road before going out.   The entire lake does not freeze the same, safety first!  We are looking forward to a great year!

Adrian’s Public Road access on Four Mile Bay
Adrian’s marked their trail today. They found 8” of ice on the bay and 5.75”-8” on the lake. They are allowing ATV’s, Side by Sides and snowmobiles now. They are asking everyone to stay on the trail as the conditions can and do change off the trail. Let’s keep it safe and have a great season!
