Blue Mesa Ice off ?

Post By: cmh      Posted: 4/10/2019 9:55:45 AM     Points: 0    
Trying to plan early ice off lake trout fishing trip around May 8th. Does any body have any current ice conditions ? Any thoughts on when boat ramps will be open. Thanks For any information

If you haven't already done so, it's always a good idea to get in touch with the Lake Skipper, or Skippers in this instance, for Blue Mesa. If you go to the lake page you'll see the skippers there and their emails to send them a message privately. They've typically got a little more info or at least know who to ask.

You should be good by May 8. I am anticipating the lake opening up around May 1, weather pending...

ice out is one thing, boat access another. as of ice up last fall there was 1 lane at elk creek , should be about the same until runoff starts. Expect a circus show at the one lane.....

If I can carry my toon to open water that is all the boat access I need!
