Any ice on Roosevelt in Outing???

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if the south end of Roosevelt is frozen over yet. Any word on ice conditions on Lawrence would also be appreciated.

i havent been north of emily since before turkey day.

the last snow we recieved was pretty light and fluffy

6-8" should not have hurt the ice making -24 wed night and i had -20 this morning. the smaller lakes have fishable ice

but may be slushy in spots as we have 15-18 inches of snow.

sorry i don't have anymore info.

It appeared to be covered on Saturday when I drove by, but I didn't see anyone out or check the thickness of the ice myself. As stated though, the -20+ temps are sure to be helping with the ice making.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
