                                                         ICE REPORT FOR DECEMBER 31, 2015

Happy Holidays!  If you had a chance to check the WEB cam yesterday or today then you may have seen that we have been out checking and working the ice.  The first 100 – 150 yards is very rough.  It froze on a windy day.  We have dragged and flooded this area so it is in very good shape with 7 – 9 inches of ice.

Unfortunately, beyond that the ice froze, broke up, and then refroze so we have pockets of 3” ice surrounded by pockets of 7 – 8” ice.  The 3” ice is not just in one area either so we cannot flood it all.  It just has to get cold and freeze more.  There is not enough ice for any motorized traffic so no 4 wheelers, snowmobiles, etc.  I also do not feel good about walking out either with the thin ice so our access is closed until we get more ice.  They are walking and taking ATV’s on the south end of the lake.  Check with resorts and/or bait shops for current info. 

 We will have the restroom/shower house open for anyone who wants to stay in their house.
