Drove it Indian Bay by ATV. No issues with wheeler or sled. I had 10" of ice. So one pickup out on the big water. Fished for 3 hours, 1 bullhead to show for the time. Had the bay to myself. Flowage is at full pool. Will not be going Bach till after Xmas.

Any reports on ice thickness? I heard there is a lot of water flow recently, but have not heard anything on ice thickness.

Any thoughts on taking a car out on the ice heading to Indian bay? Was up last weekend and had a foot of ice where we were fishing, but not sure how thick the ice is when crossing the channel. Thanks for any input.

A four wheel vehicle drove thru ditches and shoulders all along Cedar Falls to the Willow, about that same time. From the tracks it was a large tire vehicle.

I work up in Minocqua and will keep my eyes open. I'll take a swing thru the high school parking lot, see if any matching vehicles are in there.

Hello everyone, I'm Tom Shockley, the Property Manager for the Willow Flowage and I'm looking for some assistance. On 11/20 or 11/21 someone caused a lot of damage at the Sandy Boat Landing (this is the landing north of the main landing at the dam). The person tore up the grass in several areas, repeatedly drove through the storm water retention pond, and caused damage to the new erosion control berm near the beach. From the few reports I have, the vehicle was most likely a large, jacked-up Dodge truck, white in color. If anyone has any information they'd like to pass along, I'd greatly appreciate it. This is YOUR public landing folks! You guys are the eyes and ears out there so any info you can provide to help me locate the person would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. Tom

260 Rem..... If your not familiar with the Willow be very careful! The guys driving around out there with 8- 10 inches of ice either know what they are doing or have a vehicle they want to make a splash with. My guess is the second of the two! I would not drive across any channel this early in the season, especially with the dam wide open! I have seen open water in January of the coldest years. If you see guys driving around with Christmas trees strapped to their vehicle it's to mark the hole they dropped through. If you are going to purchase minnows at Willow Haven I'm sure they wouldn't have a problem driving on from their landing instead of risking the channel.

Thanks buckneged. I'm sure we'll cross paths and will return the favor if needed.

11-12 of ice. Trucks have been seen out to four islands. I stopped by indian bay and did not see any vehicles that far at least on sunday afternoon. They may have been there earlier or later.

The spots I want to get to are south of the channel. Is it safe to cross the channel?

@260 REM

The Haven does have minnows. Typically I go out from the boat launch just past the dam boat launch. When you leave the Haven, take a left, go over the dam, past the first boat launch, and then enter from the second (much larger) boat launch just down the road and get out there that way.

I've never ice fished the willow before and I would like to get on the lake. I would like to fish the area just northeast of the willow haven. Can I access the lake from willow haven and are they selling bait this winter? Thanks 260REM
