In Towne Marina Lake Waconia Ice Report and Spring Update - 1/17/2022

 Spring Update (West side of the Deep Hole in Wagener’s Bay)! Earlier this morning an angler put his truck tire in a pretty significant spring that was not marked at the time. He was in four wheel drive and his momentum got him out fine. He called us after he marked it with a 2x6. Later in the morning we went out to mark it better with lath board and flagging tape. Before today this spring was unknown to us. Please do what this gentleman did and mark spots like this if you find them! Certainly feel free to share the info with us so we can get the word out!

The coordinates of the spring are-      44° 51.788 N       93° 48.396 W

We drilled several holes today to get a current ice thickness update. The least ice We could find today in a deep snow drift was 12 inches. Many of the holes We drilled in the deep snow were around 13 to 14 inches of ice. We measured thickness on our road in several areas today too. Ice on the Main plowed road measured between 14 and 18 inches, with 15 to 16 inches being common . In the Center reef area on a side road we measured as little as 13 inches, but most of the ice on that road was 14 to 16 inches. The thickest spot I found today was on a spot near Harm’s point that had no snow and the Ice measured 19.5 inches!

Overall things are coming along very nicely in the Ice department on Waconia. We will be opening our access to tandem axle houses sometime later this week. Even as we gain ice thickness remember to check ahead of yourself when venturing off the beaten paths.
