Ice yet? Safe?

I am looking for any current updates in ice and conditions. Itís been several years since I have fished Snake River inlet. Bringing a friend who is nervous to go on ice. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.

There's 3-4" of crust on top of 7" of good clear ice on the snake river inlet, you're good to go.

I was there on Sunday and there were a lot of people there. 7" ice. Stay near the parking lot to play it safer, you can see open water further out.

Was there yesterday. Ice around 7 inches with 2 inches of snow on surface. It was 15 degrees when we arrived at 8 AM and mid 30s when we left at 2 PM. Caught a bunch of bows, kokes and one char. Biggest koke was just short of 14 inches. Bows were around 9 inches and the char was around 16 inches. Six fisherman on the ice early than around six more showed up at 11 AM.
