Sounds like there's plenty of ice to drive on. Lot's of shacks went out last weekend. Going to be a cold one this weekend...1° this morning
Miller Dam Flowage
I was out there Saturday from 8-2p.m. and didn't notice or hear about anybody going thru. We walked off the south landing by the Dam. A lot of people took wheeler's and UTV's out, but didn't see anybody driving on. There was starting to get a few permanent shacks. All that rain we got melted what snow was on top of the ice, very slick out there but when I left the house that morning I had 32 degree's and when I got home about 3p.m. it had dropped 10 degree's. There was a solid 10" where we fished, so I would imagine people will start taking vehicles out soon. Miller Dam has always had a history of someone going thru, even in mid winter. Must be some current area's probably in the channels that have thinner ice than the majority of the Flowage.
Many years ago my Uncle and cousin were out there(drove on) and a guy pulled up with his son in a brand new truck. They didn't shut off the truck and down it went.They got the father/son out of the truck and my cousin jumped in the box just long enough to throw out their auger before it went completely down. Put quite a scare at the time into my Uncle and cousin who both pasted away years ago and Ice Fished every day they could get out.

Wanting to know the conditions on miller. A friend was out last week Saturday and said there was a permanent shack that looked like it was falling thought the ice. And also a 4 wheeler with trailer the went thought ice and dropped about 2 feet. This was between the boat landing and the camp ground. Is it safe to go out this weekend with a wheeler?

Out on beaver creek today and yesterday. Yesterday, 4 of us caught 5 northern set up on both sides of the road. It was pretty windy...
Today, sun up to sun down. windy and cold. 3 guys in my truck, another vehicle showed up with 7 guys and another with 4 guys. 42 tip ups scattered all over the place and we saw maybe 12-15 fish caught... very slow day
The ice is slippery and wet but safe. Still seeing 4 wheelers cross the lake.
