I was up there 9 days ago, mostly open water. A coworker lives at Vallecito and informed me today that the ice situation is bad. The snow we got over the weekend only hurt matters. I'd figure on writing this lake off until its open in a 8 weeks or so.
Was up there today, North end has very skim ice, open in the middle south end has a little more ice than the north but it's still unfishable. Hopefully these next couple nights put a good lid on it, I'm itching for it. No snow on the north side and 3 or so slushy inches on the south so it might work out alright
