1-877-324-5161 December 2, 2013: Fall fishing was very good right up until freeze-up a few weeks ago. Looks like winter fishing is going to be good as well. We had our first ice fishing guests this past weekend and they had good success. One group fished at Waubay Lake and they did well on both Walleye and Perch. Another fished at Bitter Lake and did well on Perch. Reports that we have is that the ice is mostly 4-6". Need to be careful.
Bitter Lake (Courtesy of Bitter Lake Lodge (605)-947-5005 ) November 17, 2013: Fishing pressure has slowed considerably due to the cooling temperatures. Some fisherman still catching some nice fish when weather conditions allow.

November 29, 2013: We already have 4-6" of ice and I am seeing some brave fisherman out on the ice. We have another cold snap headed our way and I look for ice to be 6-9" by next weekend.
