Ice fishing in the NO zones

The ice fishing season is here. Lets all play safe and keep an eye on the ice conditions. I have a trap camp near Rice and Opeepeesway Lks. The ice is 10-12 " thick on these bodies of water.

Rice Lk is in a remote outfitters zone, if anglers wish to fish this body of water they must enter by the traditional trails and  NOT by the new cut roads.

The MNR keep a close watch on the access points and will charge so called treppasers.

Does this apply to snowmobiles in the winter as well?

I should be fishing.

The MNR has not been charging snowmobilers that use the traditional trails such as trappers trails, canoe routes, or pre-existing roads.

The MNR are only charging those that use the new cut roads to access any of the remote Lks in this area.

Have all your paper work in order, all manditory safety equipment and save that drink for back at camp.

It's a shame the MRN C.O.s are put in a position of policing this foolishness (remote access)when there are so few C.O.s to begin with!

Hello James,

I also used to fish Rice lake in the late 90's, but haven't in a long time because the MNR, as you no closed the road. I used to drive west on Gogama Unit Road, then ATV into Northpoint lake, then boat-in, up the river to Rice lake. You mentioned old traditional trails to Rice lake, could you please explain to me how i could do this, which trails to use without breaking the law.

Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.   Austen.

At a later date, I will post on this site, tell you about confrontations, that my friends and I have had with americans, not far from where you are, Katagi and Pebonishewee lakes.
