ELY AREA

Most lakes have six to eight inches of ice and there isn’t much snow sitting on top of it so ATVs have started being used. Fishing reports have been limited, although Shagawa Lake is giving up a few walleyes in 10 to 15 feet. Look for reports to improve as more anglers start venturing out.

PINE CITY AREA

Ice depths vary from three to six inches on most lakes. The rain last weekend did take care of most of the snow on the lakes so anglers have just started fishing again. Setlines and shiner minnows or jigging spoons are turning walleyes during low-light periods at East Rush Lake in 18 feet and on Lake Pokegama in 18 to 24 feet of water.
