Kabetogama/Namakan Fishing Report 3/17/15
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
Well a strong sign of spring has sprung. Warm days, highlighted by Sunday’s 65 degree temperature, has softened ice and very little snow remains.
As would be expected, snowmobile trail grooming has ceased, and the ice road is closed. Many areas of the lake have questionable ice.
This week looks like a cool down period, but ice making overnight is unlikely. Some shoreline ice has disappeared so needless to say ice travel requires extreme caution.
No fishing reports this week, there were some crappie anglers out, but no word on their success. Timing for a good crappie bite looks good if you can get to your favorite spot.
Perch action appears to be non-existent, perhaps time to bring the soft water for the season.
Have a Safe St. Patrick’s Day
