Click image to enlarge :: Boundaries are TBD if not marked on image Conditions on Lake Menomin in Menomonie Traffic over the weekend has started to open up most of the landings. As of today, it is still possible to access the lake. I saw a number of flips ups and a quad out on the ice this afternoon. What effect the rain has on ice tonight and what drainage/temperatures does tomorrow and Wednesday will determine if a tournament will be held. Right now the best option I can see is to launch on the east side of the lake (cemetery bay) and keep the tournament confined to that area (most likely 15-20 teams so the field will not be huge). It will be a walking tournament, but not a walk across the lake, many teams fish cemetery bay every year so there should be fish. The ice itself was reported in the 15-18 inch depth as of yesterday. Accessing the ice will most likely be the question at hand.
