The MPO Quick Glance-January 22nd, 2021

If you have spent any amount of time on the ice near or around the Devils Lake area, you will know it’s been a very difficult week of fishing. We are hoping things will rebounds soon!

Ice conditions- 11 to 15 inches in most areas. The wind again this week really messed things up around the bridges and also the pressure ridges. Please use caution!

Water clarity this week with the wind has really dirtied the water below the ice. Again, hopefully things will settle down.

Be prepared to play a lot of yo yo with the fish. They are extremely moody right now.
