Lake Report as of Friday February 8th, 2019
I was out yesterday, there is 16 to 20 inches of ice so the ice is good but there is about 2 inches of water on top.

When it freezes today and tonight, it’s going to be glare ice, no lubrication for sleds if it doesn’t snow a little.

Also the water went up a little so it leveled out some of the ice heaves, but they will be back. They are still letting water out so once it starts dropping the heaves will be back.

Here is a mid-week lake report. This one is going to be a little different, mostly pictures, so everybody can see for themselves how good the lake is. I have to admit, this is the second best I’ve seen the lake all season. The only bad spot I’ve seen is off the point of Griffis […]

Snowy Lake with fog

February 23rd, 2018

(Here’s the all important after the thaw lake report..) Ice Report The lake is actually in better shape than it was last week. With the snow yesterday it’s a little slushy but not bad at all. The warm weather this week has melted the hard snow and flattened out the ruts. There’s still 2’ of […]
