Thank you guys. Heading up in a week and just want to know if worth bringing ATVs or sleds.

Bear, Plenty of ice. 18" plus on most lakes.  Most snow has blown off of lakes or has compacted.  Might have some drifts and deeper snow on shorelines.  Should be passable.  Bring a shovel just in case.  

Thats a report from my dad who is  up there and home from AZ to snowmobile for a couple of weeks.  He was out on lakes today.

Ending the weekend with a couple awesome highlights. Started chasing walleye on submerged humps and got on a great bite. Including a handful of legals, 4 nice fish over 20inches and one above the slot. All caught and released. Also, targeted some crappie over mud and stuck another 15+inch giant. CPR. 

Ice conditions have been consistent to past reports. This cold snap added quite a bit of ice in some areas. Snowmobile travel in my opinion is by far the best. There's a considerable amount of snow on the ice so I'd be cautious about breaking new paths with atvs and even vehicles in some areas. Be safe and good luck out there!

Wow,  I guess I cant ask for information on Snow/ Ice conditions for ATV travel. That’s considered a favor?You act like I want to know where to fish and which hole and bait to use. I have always helped fellow fisherman and women with information. If travel condition information is considered a favor in your eyes. You should take up golf my good sir....

Here is a video that I put together from my trip up here earlier in the year.  So . . . not sure if many of you have been following the latest trends with YouTube, but they're making it harder on us smaller YouTubers, and I would greatly appreciate it if you would subscribe to my channel. Thanks.

People are not going to answer that inquiry, if they do they feel that that their doing this huge unpaid favor for weekenders rather than just being nice. I would just drive up find out for yourself and not worry about conditions they are what they are. I haven't gone for a couple weeks but I would take mine.

Do any of you know if traveling with ATVs on Big Saint Germain is Possible? How much snow is on the ice?

With little vegetation to die off and consume oxygen and a flow of water through the system the flowage should not experience any oxygen problems.   The shallow weedy lakes like Pickeral may although with Border creek and the St. Germain river flowing into the north end I’m surprised there is low oxygen.

With this in mind, it may be wise to fish lakes with more depth and fewer weeds OR fish part of the lake without heavy weed growth.

We fished Sunday noon til dark on the Rainbow off Rainbow Shores in a group of about 15 people, in the river channel in about 14 ft .  Never saw anyone get a thing. Few fish marked. Minnows were all very lively when we pulled our lines so 02 level was good.
