Does any body know when Bellaire is going to be open again?

I just called the Forest Service and they said they have a contractor that is supposed to clear out a lot of the dead beetle killed trees but unfortunately this might not happen for awhile, probably not until next spring or summer. This really is too bad because it is such a nice lake to icefish on. The sign at the gate clearly states no one is allowed in the area, including foot traffic. Oh well, just have to stick with Dowdy, West, and Parvin for now. I'll keep a close eye on it and if anything changes I will definitely update the forum.

Dang! It's such a fun lake to ice. I guess I will just have stick to Dowdy.

They started pulling out dead trees on 1/21/13, but the guys working had no idea how long it would take. I am guessing that it may be shut down for the winter.

Bellaire is now open for walk in access but the gate will be closed for some time.
