The lakes are currently inaccessible. 130 has just been opened but the Snowy Range Lakes will still be frozen and snowed in for another few weeks.
Most are still iced up. Have had a couple reports of the lower lakes like Hanging lake being open but not much for reports yet.
Most if not all of the high alpine lakes are frozen with snow cover. Many are only accessible via snowmobile or some ATVs with current conditions.
Hanging Lake had between 5″-10″ of good ice but did vary from one side of lake to other. Miller was not accessible today do to snow. As of Sunday had 8″-12″ of ice and fishing was good. As always conditions can change quick so use best judgment and be safe.
