In Towne Marina Lake Waconia Ice Report - 1/10/22 - Access open for cars and 1/2 ton trucks starting Tuesday 1/11/22

Ice Update - Today 1/10/22 we were finding between 10” and 16” of ice. I was concentrating on seeing how much ice we gained in the deeper snow drifts. Common ice in the deeper drifts is 11 inches. The least I found today was 10 inches of ice. I am having to work pretty hard to find 10 inches of ice and those spots are shrinking! Surrounding ice near those drifted areas was 11 to 16 inches today.

On Tuesday 1/11/22 We are opening our access to driving! We will be allowing cars and up to ½ ton trucks through our access. We will be allowing single axle wheel houses behind trucks LATER in the week. We currently have a road that ends north of Waconia Bay (12” to 13” of ice on that plowed road). We will continue that road out towards Center Reef and Pillsbury Reef tomorrow ( the ice where that road will be was between 10.5 and 16” where I checked today).

As always, we can never guarantee ice. If you use our access it is drive at your own risk. We do our best to report thicknesses to you but can’t cover it all, so we always advise you to do your own ice checking before going out, especially with a truck and fish house.

Our access rate if driving vehicles, ATV’s or Snowmobiles is $5 per day on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays and $3 per day Monday through Thursday. If parking and walking out through our access, it is $2 every day.

Our Fish House Rental season is underway! We’ve got 3 rentals on the ice. 2 of them are our Ice Castles that are 8 holers and one is our 6-hole houses. We drill the holes, the heat is on and ready for you too fish! They are currently located around 10 feet of water for good daytime sunfish and evening crappies! If you’d like to make a reservation, please call (952) 442-2096.

We will see you on the ice!
