So I'm coming up in a couple of weeks for the Subaru Winter Festival and our cabin is right on Eagle Lake. Last year, there was a ton of snow on the lake and it meant standing in like 6" of water on the ice. I'm curious to how to lake condition is looking this winter so far.

I sent you a PM.  You can use the Polaris Ride Command App to see general idea of the trails.  Its not 100% accurate but its close.  You can also go on www.snoeagles.org to look at the map from the snowmobile club.

Thank you gentlemen for your timely responses. Many years ago I was fishing south twin and a guy put his truck through trying to drive over from North. I was guessing it would be unsafe, but every body of water is different. Do the snowmobile trash connect the lakes? I really want to hit multiple lakes in one day, but don't want to trailer everywhere (if possible).

I know someone that sunk a sled going in the "channel" between Eagle and S.R. They are luckyto be alive. Dont try it.

RiverRat  Absolutely NOT. Our place is in the channel between Catfish and Cranberry and I can say if you want to do that you better be one hell of a water skipper on your sled. Do not travel between any lakes via the channel.  Maybe Scattering Rice to Eagle but even that I would not advise.

Obviously no ice is safe ice, but If I get on the chain on scattering rice via snowmobile, is it possible to travel to cranberry, catfish and eagle safely on the ice in a normal winter? Are there marked trails to follow from lake to lake? 

Thanks

Was out 2 weeks ago, fished south end of Catfish lake. Drifting and dragging the bottom with blue jigs and gold hooks. Using medium fatheads. Caught dinner plate size crappies in 20/21 ft of water and keeper walleyes in 19 - 17 ft.

The bottom was just starting to turn over. Limited out on walleyes. Good eating fish... Smile

Fished Otter and Eagle (and the channel in between) for walleye on the 14th. Fishing was difficult with the strong 20+ mph winds. Boat control over the few areas of structure is key here, and without that ability it was hard fishing. Picked up a few walleye drifting over the weeds off Rocky Point on Eagle Lake. They would only hit in the 10-12 FOW where the weed edge is. This weed edge is consistent everywhere we went. They all stop at 10 feet. We picked up a couple other walleye in different areas using the same technique: drifting with jigs and fathead minnows over the weed edges. Really tough fishing in so much wind. Of course Sunday we had to leave and the lakes were calm and the sun was shining, no wind at all Crying

Good luck fall Muskie hunters....there were plenty of you trying, but no success that I saw that day. Good luck everyone.

Hello!

Thank you in advance for any help. My father, brother and myself are planning a trip to Eagle River for a fall musky trip. Typically we stay in St. Germain and pull in and out everyday on different lakes each day.

This year we wanted to try something different. It has been many many years since any of us have fished the chain but it seems like a better body of water to spend a long weekend on and fish for musky. We have found one cabin to rent, on Duck Lake.

First, is this the correct end of the chain to fish for musky, and if not, what area should we target. I do not need a specific lake or a spot, we can handle fishing and figuring that out. With such a large body of water, and only a couple days, we don't want to waste time driving to the other half of the chain after not catching anything on the first half.

Also, if the Northern lakes are the wrong lakes, or even if they are the correct lakes, does anyone know of a place to stay on the chain where we can keep the boat in the water for a couple days? We are headed up there from Milwaukee on 10/30-11/3.

Again, thanks for any help and I will be sure to post a report when we return.

I am heading to Eagle River this weekend to a friends cabin for the first time! I will admit, I love to fish, but do not own a boat, so shore fishing bass and gills is what I am used to. However, this time I will be spending the weekend with no worries, on a boat and ready to fish! Just wondering what people fish with for muskies or walleyes as I have never tried and I am sure my night crawlers will not do the trick in the middle of the river! Again, not looking for any secrets, just some good beginner tips for the area!

Thanks and happy fishing to all!
