Ice Update

Post By: chodeman      Posted: 12/10/2017 10:35:57 PM     Points: 316    
Started the day at Road Canyon on 3" to 4" of hard yet still "sketchy" ice. This afternoon I ran over to Mountain Home. Spud bar went thru on second hit with 2" at best. With overnights lows in the single digits, hoping to have good ice by next weekend. I'll update then!

From what I understand, there were people fishing it yesterday and today. No idea what the conditions were though.

I haven't been back over, but was told that people are fishing it. Wish I had a better update.

We fished it on the 23rd, but 80% of the lake was open by the time we left. One cove on the north side had older thicker ice but it was getting thin by the time we left so I donít know if it survived the warm windy conditions.

Had 62 degrees in Monte Vista today! I fished at 10,000 feet and had water on top of ice. Mountain Home....well be VERY careful out there.
