January 16th, Lake Winnie Fishing Report

There’s 15 inches of ice on the main lake, but less in areas along the shore so resorts continue to be limited with plowing options. There’s also 12 to 24 inches of snow across the lake making snowmobiles the only way people are getting out. There is a little bit of flooding when holes are drilled, but our cold weather has been freezing existing water, making snowmobile travel easier. Perch fishing has been good on the shoreline breaks and main lake structure and some walleyes continue to be caught on the humps and bars early and late each. Bring a snowmobile and contact resorts for access availability.
