I am hoping they are good by now...!?! We head out there every new years and it is always good...at least for walking. Even with last years warm December there was 5-6" in some of the bays.

Anyone?

Carlos was one of our last lakes in the area to cap over. I would use extreme caution the first couple of times out.

Thanks Wayne. That is disappointing. We are headed out again this year for new years, please keep us posted as you know more. I am hoping the next 2 weeks can add some thickness.

I agree with what Wayne said I live on carlos and it isn't very thick at all. I would wear a life jacket out the first couple times. I know I will be going out next week to check! on the 22nd I can help you more then!

Thanks Drake, please keep us posted. Where are you on the lake? We usually go out over by Blakes(south end). The last 4-5 years we have had some solid ice by new years, at least 6", never an issue. I was hoping with the cold snap the ice would be decent, (Contact Us Please) snow.

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
