I think most all the reservoirs are frozen over. Some have more ice than others. KR7 (Kalmar) & Silver Creek Res possibly have the most ice with over 7-8" and Foster Arends and Willow creek are holding onto 4-6" of ice. Chester Woods and Lake Zumbro may have areas with unsafe ice, but they are also being fished in certain areas.

What's the typical day of ice fishing on Chester like? Mostly sunnies? I'd like to catch some crappies or perch. I've never been there, but I think about it on the way to work every time I pass it.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
