You might want to look at Boyle's as well.
Looked over last year reports, seen there was mention of a plowed road and a split by the 4 islands and was wondering if there is an obvious route marked this year from the sand launch to Indian bay? I have an atv + trailer I would like to get out there on Sunday. I have a map of the lake and have been studying it, seems like there are plenty of other places worth trying along the way as well. Thanks in advance.
To get to Indian bay walking will take some time. Over an hour is my guess. Lots of people skip the main basin right out from the sand landing but there are great opportunities not far from launch. Check into a hotspots map showing humps, you should be able to find fish.
36° - 40° F
Went out to Indian bay via backbay today. A lot of people fishing. Saw full sized vehicles, utvs, and atvs. Not much snow on the ice. Fished 6:45am till 1pm. Pulled a nice 24 inch northern out of the ice. Still learning the area. I decided to walk my sled out, I'd like to fish for many years to come.
If you are new to the Willow, please do your homework and learn the areas before going out. There are dangerous areas all over the place and if you’re gonna show up to the landing and go out blind and ignorant, good luck. Seen more vehicles broken through on this flowage than ever over the years. Read the past few years of posts and buy maps, take notes, and learn the flowage’s tendencies the hard ( and smart) way. Those asking the way to Indian bay and venturing out with no info are really risking a lot; there are several areas crossing that channel that are never safe, and especially not now, I’d think. I haven’t been on since 12/29.
Stay safe, and do your homework, folks.
