Has anybody been out on Steamboat?

Just curious of the ice conditions and how the fishing has been. I might be headed up that way tomarrow and give it a try.

Fished it last weekend, no fish but lots of slush, there were about 5 houses off the landing. Bring hip boots if planning on walking alot or fishing outside. About 6-8" of slush. Watched a guy pull his portable with a sled and rooster tailed it all the way. Don't know what would even happen if you stopped the sled in the slush. You would definitly want to double back on your track.

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
