devils lake conditions?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys heading up to devils lake in march and I was wondering what lake conditions are like currently,? I'm sure ice isn't an issue but how is the snow? are people driving out trucks or do you need tracks, thanks

You can get most places with trucks. Hopefully this continues, but we have been luck with the snow this winter. Seems like anytime we have got a lot of snow we have got a ton of wind that has been blowing it off the lake.

Thanks, holmsvc Trip is over a month away and a lot can happen with the weather, 2 years ago it was 50's and ice was melting fast, last year it was -15 windy and a blizzard,lol Just never know what to expect but that's what makes the trip fun, seperates the men from the boys.lol

Was up there last weekend and there was a fair amount of snow on the lake. Travel was not an issue as long as you steer clear of the larger drifts. We did a lot of weaving around bigger drifts in certain areas.

I wouldn't worry about there being ice 3/22. There will likely be drivable ice in April this year unless we hit a week of 60s.

Ya, I'm thinking there should be good ice, I'm more curious about traveling on the lake as far as do we bring snowmobiles or will a guy be able to get around with atv's. Looking forward to the reports.

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.    
    • Thanks guys I will look into them.
