It’s hard water fishing season!

Ice Conditions on Bass Lake

Even though we had a very late ice-over the cold temperatures in December have firmed up Bass Lake quickly. Right now there is 12″ or so of ice on our end of the lake. We haven’t had too many ice fishermen in yet but there are lots of folks out there fishing! There isn’t enough ice for trucks or big wheelhouses but with cold temps forecasted we are optimistic that it won’t be long before conditions will allow them. We only have about 8 inches of snow so snow conditions are fine for both wheelers and snowmobiles on the lake.

We had lots of snowmobilers in over the NYE weekend!

Itasca County Snowmobile Trail Conditions

Right now we are a little light on snow for optimal snowmobile trail conditions. We have about 8 inches on the ground but local clubs are working on the trails. Here are links to area snowmobile clubs and snowmobile trail reports:

Itasca County X-Ski Trail Conditions

minnesota winter resort

Winter is a beautiful time to visit the northwoods!

Itasca County is blessed with many beautiful x-ski trails for all levels of skiiers. Although a Christmas ice storm wreaked some havoc on area trails our local Nordic ski club volunteers have been working to get the trails back in shape! You can check x-ski trail conditions here.

Winter is a truly beautiful season in the northwoods and we invite you to spend some time with us enjoying it in 2017.

Blessings to you and your families in the New Year!
