Rumour has it ice is soft?? 12-16" and extremely rough nobody has went on with truck yet. Apparently the fishing was slow??

Called Bloomfields today. No plowing yet, lots of snow. Lady I talked to had no ice reports and didn't know if people were on ice yet.

not specific to this, lake, however I'd post a huge word of caution for any ice travel this week.

My in laws are from Ile-a-la-crosse where they've been using the ice roads. Some people swore the ice was 15" and I cautioned my in laws about travelling across as these reports are BS and do not reflect true ice thickness across the lake, around islands or streams. Sure enough 2 vehicles went in, in the last 2 days with ice being as thin as 3" in spots that the town regularly uses to shortcut back to Beauval.

Do not take anyone's word for safe travels unless they can prove that at all points of travel that, that ice is at least 12" of solid ice.
TEAM Saskatchewan: Yes, we have ice in December!.

There's about 1 foot of snow on Ballantyne Bay.  Fishing for walleye is decent at Puskwakau area.  Some slush reported.  No reports of other areas being fished at the moment.

Fished Deschambault yesterday. Nothing has been plowed yet and nothing planned due to snow forecast. Snow is deep and it is tough going even in 4x4. We had it out in front a couple hundred yards and caught a couple of pike.

Did anyone talk to them to see if they plan on plowing it out this year?  Is the plow truck running or did it die?  I would like to know if they are planning on plowing it yet this year.  if there is a lot of snow, he may have trouble moving that much snow.

Wow...he must have had a cat to plow that road....we have 3 ft of snow that settled to about 28 inches....tonnes of slush.

We do have lots of ice under snow and slush.

If your skidooing across lakes breaking trail do not bring a fan-cooled sled ....and do not go alone.  There have been several people stranded(some overnight) after getting stuck in slush.

I took my fan cooled sled without an issue not understanding what you are meaning yes lots of slush but there isnít slush on the whole entire lake obviously if your in slush you donít stop to check it out just pin it and go to where there isnít any? Not try to be a smart ass but a little common sense goes a long way.... tight lines

Depends....

I have seen lakes that we cross that were slush for 5 miles....

Fans sleds can be underpowered and get stuck.

If you have a newer. Long tracked fan sled you will  be o.k.

Just back Friday its entirely possible to get stuck in flood water if you're not paying attention or stop to help a buddy flood water sort of a foot deep in places I didnt take time to measure it .  Willow island burbot aplenty few picks few jacks and some perch slow fishing. The road was plowed but we used sleds all round take a shovel for the snow on the ice to drill a hole ! Another snow will make access even more exciting

Anyone been up here this week. Hoping to do a day trip to Willow Island for burbot. Just curious if the bite is still on or the spawn has slowed them down. Thanks!

Still some decent fishing at Willow Island to be had.  The road is drivable if you don't mind a bit of water in 4 spots. Trucks only though.
