Ironranger...........Just curious if you made it out on Whiteface for some ice fishing. What were the conditions like? I have not seen much of any ice fishing activity on the lake as as of yet.

Was out on Whiteface yesterday. Accessing is no problem with a snowmobile, ATV will be hard with all the slush in area's. Have 6-8 inches of good solid ice with 4 inches of weaker ice on top. Picked up 2 Eyes, things should inprove with the weather comming in.

I didn't make it up, I couldn't get a read on how the ice was, but I am leaving tomorrow (1/4) and will be fishing it on Saturday. Just-Jig, where did you get on the lake from? I usually access from the Weiberg campground which is now closed, so I'm curious as where you you accessed from. I called my neighbor up there yesterday and he also said ATV'ing is going to be tough, so I got the snowshoes packed and will have to lighten the load to get out on the ice.

USFS access on the north end. Some have parked along road before Weiberg's gate and accessed across the bay.

Just wondering if anyone has an update on ice conditions, got out on the 5th, but the slush made ATV'ing pretty dicey. Has any of the slush hardened up yet or is still about the same?
