Taylor Ice?

Post By: pikemaster      Posted: 12/11/2017 1:02:16 PM     Points: 0    
Any reports on ice at Taylor? I was thinking about heading that way this weekend for the first time. Looking at posts from the last couple years it seems that the lake usually ices over about this time. Any info is appreciated.

Some Ice at the inlet about a week ago when I was up there, has probably continued to grow a bit... Thinking about trying to fish it this weekend. Again, some ice, but I can't say if it's safe and there's not much. Open water pike fishing was no good, at least with a fly.

If you end up fishing at Taylor please post the conditions. Thinking about going right after the first of the year.

Also anyone up there let us know about snow conditions by the marina. I usually haul my sled that way and those conditions are useful to know.

I was up there the second week of Nov. The entrance to the marine was barricaded. Sign said no vehicles allowed. You may have to find another way to get on the lake.

Cool. I am hoping the snowmobiles will have packed the trail since I hauled my sled down and back out that way by foot. Packed trail makes it easier on this travelled body.

Thank you all for the heads up! I will definitely plan this out.

Ice is 11 1/2". Road icy from Almont up, but good. Went yesterday. Afternoon wind, couple of runaway huts. Lakers were hitting 2" white tubes tipped with sucker off the bottom, pretty much everywhere we fished.

Just talked with the marina - they say ice ranges from 6" - 10" depending. Some slush on the west end, but fisherman out on it daily.
