Lake Hattie 12/18/21

By Lake Hattie, Laramie Plains Lakes, Wyoming

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.

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.
