Snow and Lake access in area north of big river
« on: Apr 16, 2018, 10:06 PM »
Hey all,

Hope everyones regular ice fishing season went well.  I actually had a pretty decent ice fishing season rounded out by 3 good trips to last mountain at the end of the season.  Now me and my buddy have our eyes set on some april trout.  but since we do not have snowmobiles and since the end of this winter (is it actually over yet??!) has been snow filled i was just wondering what conditions were like up in the area north of big river.

we are fine walking on the lake if there is slush and deep snow (we would rather not get stuck) but my main interest is the road into the lake.  We are planning to camp a few nights in my buddies winter tent and if needed we will hike into the lake bringing the gear on the sled and wearing our backpacks.  just kinda wondering what we might be getting ourselves into.  And wondering if we should avoid the optimism of thinking the trail into the lake looks good and start driving down it only to find out too late the snow is too deep.

So i am wondering if anyone has been up in the area and has any snow/lake reports to share.  The path in is heavily tree covered so i assume the melt will be going slower.  Anyone with any recent knowledge of the snow up in the hackett lake area?

We are planning on heading out this friday april 20th.

Thanks in advace for any info, and good luck to everyone trying for trout this month!

Sounds like fun. There is a lot snow in the bush, no vehicle access to Teds.
