Brule DNR Report
By: Wisconsin DNR-Brule, Superior Telegram
Snow has been hard to come by this winter.
As of Thursday, there was only 3-4 inches of snow on the ground. The forecasted warm temperatures will certainly take a toll on the snow depth in the next few days.
Those looking to get around to get out and about in the woods can easily do so without the use of snowshoes right now.
• Despite the lack of snow, skiers have been making use of the trails on the Brule River State Forest property.
Skiers on the Afterhours Trail have been reporting fair conditions for skate skiing. There is some vegetation coming through the snow and a few bare patches, but the skiers seem happy to be out with their rock skis.
The trail still does not have enough base to set tracks for the classic skiers.
• Anglers are reporting 8-10 inches of ice on the area lakes. Fishing success is said to be spotty.
