The National Park Service has extended their ice road around Dryweed Island making a large loop to the area of Cranberry Bay and Back to Black Bay. Ice anglers have been getting out to the easy access structures that are holding walleye and crappie. Access the Park ice road at the Rainy Lake visitor Center ramp. The walleye bite has been best later in the day. suspending a minnow off the bottom with a bobber has been working in around 35 feet of water. Sand Bay and the Birch Point area remain very popular.
Snowmobile trails are in great shape and all the ski and snowshoe trails are open and in great shape too.
