Upper Palmer Lake Ice?

Post By: Mr. Fly Fisherman      Posted: 1/2/2019 9:56:28 AM     Points: 148    
I saw there was an update, but Iím unable to read it. I am planning to hike up there tomorrow in hopes to get on some ice. Does anyone know how thick the ice is?

join us on the Plus side and you can read all the updates.

As for thickness, I'm not sure. Had a person that hiked up but did not get on the ice and they informed me it is frozen. So unfortunately thats all the info I have.

If you go up, send me a conditions report (not a fishing report) and let me know and I'll post on your behalf.

I have the FrX+ membership... Still can't see any updates. Any guidance is appreciated.

Also - is the upper reservoir a fly/lure only site, or can an ice fisherman use bait such as crawlers, waxies, and other dead offerings (shrimp, suckers, etc.)?

I cant answer about the bait but the skipper did say a friend hiked up there said it was frozen but did not get a ice measurement

Dangler, I'm the skipper, please see my reply right above your post.

As for bait, the answer is no. It is fly and lure only. If you go, please submit a better conditions report than what I currently have.
