Ice fishing has been good. Folks should still be extremely careful if venturing out on the ice, particularly if weather warms up this weekend. Ice was last reported at around 12 inches thick. Anglers are reminded that a human-made ice hole can be no larger than 12 inches in diameter or length.

The Hwy 140 webcam at Lake of the woods will give you a good idea of the road conditions. Anglers are reminded that a Snow Park permit is necessary if parking around Fish Lake.

Fish Lake was stocked with trophy trout in early October, and fall fingerling tiger trout.

Anglers have been catching some nice tiger trout as of late. Tiger Trout should be immediately released unharmed. Anglers are encouraged to report their catch to Rogue Fish District Staff 541-826-8774 ext. 72411
