I drove by it yesterday. There was some open water and some ice. I would not ice fish there yet.

Isnít JW within the Roosevelt NF closure currently in place for the Cameron peak fire area? Main roads are open and the reservoir is actually owned by the city of ft collins, but the surrounding land is NF.

My brother drove by this morning. Said it looked to be about 80 percent capped.

Thank you sir. Just saw in on the news too. Really happy to hear that fire is 92% contained hopefully this snow puts it out for good.

If people aren't able to ice fish Joe Wright maybe if those Grayling are ok they'll get some growth on them.

First ride on the sleds at Gould today, just drove by Joe wright, it is ice capped with snow on it, no one fishing. There was one truck at Barnes meadow and several cars skiing Zimmerman lake. Many people skiing Michigan ditch trail on the top of Cameron.
