Questions about Lake Onalaska

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am interested in ice fishing Lake Onakaska yet this year. It would be my first time down there. I am from MN, but plan to meet some of my WI buddies there. None of us have ever been there but we have heard good things about it and it is kind of a half way meeting point for both parties. Does anyone know if this is considered shared waters with MN or am I required to purchase a WI fishing license? Also, how is the ice conditions currently and are they deteriorating yet cause we won't be going for a couple of more weeks? Lastly, any other tips would be appreciated on where to stay, what the fish are hitting on, etc.

Thanks Much

I know the lake well, at least I think so. The fishing is usually very good, sometimes you have to move to find them. The LM Bass bite has been unreal. Many bass being caught on tip-ups and if you are lucky they hit your little jigs and give you a good fight. Crappies are on the run in the shallows and hard to locate. Gills are always biting, you just have to find them also. i am not sure how ice will be in a few weeks, right now it is very good. 2 feet+, able to drive anywhere on the main lake.

Meyer, It is a boundary water so you need your Mn licence. Wisconsin laws apply so I would pick up a Wi regs book. There's alot of access points from the north shoreline, one drive on that I know of. A couple accesses on the south shore by the airport, Fishermans Rd and the sailboat club. Dresbach dam is right there if your looking for walleyes. The ice is good on the river at the dam but that can change fast if the river comes up. Good luck.

Fishing is Life.
