Ice is 1”-4”. Hattie has a wide variance in thickness and quality of ice today but was capped. A couple of fisherman where brave enough to venture out by the dam and boat ramp which had around 4” of ice. Reports from the rest of the lake varies from 1”-3” all the way up to upper lake along the shore but not enough for us to venture out a verify today. Looks like a good start for now but needs some more cold.
Meeboer has 1″-5″ of ice with the best being 3″-5″ west of the boat ramp area. Open water around the aerator and a little on the Northwest by the parking lot. Fishing was a little slow this morning but will get a better idea as the opportunity is improving with conditions.
1″-5.5″ of ice. The lake had about 5″ of ice off the boat ramp to at least 20 yards out. Past that ice looked newer and didn’t venture out. Open water in the middle from the aerator to the east for about 70 yards and a small open area on the south shore halfway from the boat ramp to the other parking area. No fisherman out around noon.
Gelatt was about 95% covered with a small section open on the west end. Ice is very choppy on both the east and west ends of the lake. The open section wasn’t promising with the current winds but hope it holds and starts building. No one out on it yet and no evidence of anyone gutsy enough to test yet.
The fishing is Good right now. Best flies right now: Black Wooly Bugger, Flu Shot, and Black Wooly Bugger Again!
