First time to devils lake.

Recommended Posts

I was asked to be apart of a trip to Devils Lake. Just looking for some general info. Or mabey a phone number to call. 3 people we're going to pull a wheel house with and plan on spending 3 days on the lake. I understand it's a big body of water and like any lake it could be hit or miss for someone fishing it with no experience of the lake. I have fished Lake Winnibigishosh for a number of years. It has taken me several years to learn the lake but the past 3 years has been very sucessful for me. Questions for devils lake. Access on to the lake? (resorts ect.) Are there plowed roads? Many people use wheel house out there? Just looking for a place to access what travel might be like once on the lake. And mabey a point in the right direction to mabey catch a few fish. Would be willing to pay a guide service to lead us out if it would be ok to use our shelter and equiptment. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated. Planning on the last weekend in January Friday thru Monday. Sorry I know it's rather short notice.

Thanks.

All of the access points on Devils Lake are public access. Many people use permanent houses but the key is to stay mobile. If your need more info or are looking for a guide you can give me a call.

    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!  
    • It was an okay trip, made the best of it. Changed destination and distance I was willing to travel in those weather conditions. Can't afford to screw up when I'm solo.  More of a winter trip feel than a fall trip. After fishing in 17 degree windchill, I found just hanging out fireside a much better option.   I think I need to do an actual summer BW trip next year, despite the bugs and crowds. Then I can take the fishing part more seriously.   Seen some groups pass by camp, so there were others as crazy as I.
