This is the time of year when people are often uncertain what the ice conditions on any given lake may be.
Willow Creek is one of the lakes I skipper for, but I'm not going to make it up there until after the holidays ato check it out.
So we rely on all of you to update lake conditions and let hte community know when it is capped and when it is fishable.
As the skipper, we have the discretion to award points for lake condition updates as we see fit, according to their value to the fishing community here.
And transitional time updates are the most valuable. The points are good for entries into the 2018 winter give-away.
The best entries, IMO, are entries that describe ice conditions, variability (open areas? thick/thin areas) and surface conditions (wind-blown and slick, covered in 2' of snow?, good traction?) and as a bonus, if you can post-up with a few pictures, that would be ideal. A few people have tried to scam for points by faking updates, so we're leery of that.
Anyway, if you are headed up that way, to fish or in passing returning from another area lake (Williams Fork, Granby, Shadow Mountain, etc..) please stop by and let us know. I'll be sure that you get some entries into the give-away, and the community at large will appreciate it!
