Was up in Lehr march 6-10 with 4 other good fisherman and the fishing was awful.  We managed 11 perch and 1 walleye in 4 days of fishing.  It did not help we had extreme wind the first 2 days which churned up the lakes.  We managed to try 4 different lakes with equally poor success.  We never found any schools......infact im not sure there are any.  A local lake apparently had 85 trucks on it the week before we got there and must have been piss pounded.  Most of local lakes dont show stocking since 2013 unless I missed something.  All the fish we caught were good size but no smaller ones.  Who knows, it could have been the weather or there just werent that many fish in the lakes we tried

March 10th; More lakes giving up some nice fish, but you have to work for them. The cold front slowed the bite. The weatherman was right about the wind last Monday and Tuesday, but the temperature was not 45 degrees! It was low teens. Our ice is now as good as it was in mid January! But, it is March! The sun will open some places where a submerged road is very near the surface. I have these places marked in red on my lake maps. Driving through cattails or bull rushes should be avoided. I do not know all of the ice hazards on all lakes. I can only show you the past places that had problems that I know about. Remember driving or walking on ice can be very dangerous! You are responsible for checking the ice you plan to travel on! Know one else can relieve you of this responsibility! All ice reports are only good for the hour they were issued. I think we will be ice fishing until the end of the first week of April. We are driving 4 wheel drive trucks almost everywhere. Wheelers are safer. Good fishing and good luck.

Heading down from Minot to fish this weekend and I was just wandering if the access to any of the other lakes has improved. Green lake in particular is of interest to me. Thanks for any helpful info that may be out there. Grip&Rip

March 6; More lakes giving up some nice fish. Monday and Tuesday will have wind and some warmth. This will reduce the quality of our ice. However we have lots of good ice. The ice conditions remain good. But, it is March! The sun will open some places where a submerged road is very near the surface. I have these places marked in red on my lake maps.

March 3; Fishing was great before a cold front a few days ago. However some fishermen managed to find Hungary fish each day. The ice is close to needing an extension. If your in a hard shack with elevated floor, you would need an extension. Other wise not. We have them for sale here. The ice conditions remain very good. But, it is March!

February 28th; Dry Lake at 50 ft in front of my camper, one mile north of the boat landing. I had 33 inches of very good ice. The shoreline looked very good.  Mark and Melanie found a great perch walleye bite. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 cell

February 26th; I was on vacation last week. Today I started to check the ice and lake ice conditions. First was Lehr WMA. At 50 ft in front of the landing I had 30.5 inches of very good ice. The shoreline looked very good. The landing had 2 inches of ice with 2 inches of water under out to 12 feet from ramp, with 30 inch ice under that. Green Lake had 25 inch ice of very good quality except for 2 inches of bad ice at the bottom. The boat launch in the park was very high quality. The shore line ice looked very good. Tomorrow I will check some more area lakes and report on them. We are getting some nice fish but not great fishing yet. Some days it is great fishing. Good fishing and good luck.

The ice is honeycombed. Walking out isn't an issue yet. Some slush and snow on the ice north of Lehr. Colder temps coming should firm things back up, best bet is to walk out or use an ATV. I would not drive a truck out anymore this year. Check the ice at each place you fish prior to venturing to far out. Ice is plenty thick but like I said, it is honeycombed...
