Gelatt is mostly capped with the only open water being the section near the aerator. Ice is about 2-4″, however there are many air bubbles in the ice.
Twin Buttes is about 50% open still. Ice on the east side of the boat ramp, only about 1-2″ and soft.
Lake Hattie is still wide open with ice around the edges near the boat ramp.
Meeboer has 1″-5″ of ice with the best being 3″-5″ west of the boat ramp area. Open water around the aerator and a little on the Northwest by the parking lot. Fishing was a little slow this morning but will get a better idea as the opportunity is improving with conditions.
Twin is capped and had 2″-5″ on the areas we checked. 5″ solid on the east end by the first outhouse. Boat ramp had about 4″ of ice. Several groups of fishermen out. Fishing was fair.
1″-5.5″ of ice. The lake had about 5″ of ice off the boat ramp to at least 20 yards out. Past that ice looked newer and didn’t venture out. Open water in the middle from the aerator to the east for about 70 yards and a small open area on the south shore halfway from the boat ramp to the other parking area. No fisherman out around noon.
Meeboer was 100% open and free of ice. Looking forward to some great ice off fishing.
Twin Buttes opened up significantly yesterday in the wind. About 65% of the lake is now open including the boat ramp. There is still ice in the first bay and on the East end of the lake by the first outhouse. It was open water from the West end all the way past the boat ramp and all along the North shore. Should start to fish well with chironomid flies, and eggs but we’ll have to see how this goes this year.
Twin was still completely capped but edges are shot every where we looked.
Meeboer was about 40% open with fishable water on the East and South sides. Boat ramp was clear of ice. The west end bay and 1/2 of the “horseshoe” was still capped. Fishing had been a little bit slower but should pick up as ice comes off
Lake is capped but ice conditions very and are thin around the shore. 1.5″-3″ of ice. Fishing has been hard to report with ice conditions changing daily.
Lake Owen has around 6″ of ice and fishing is good. Access to the lake is day by day with drift conditions changing. People where able to get in with ATV this past week but may be snowmobile only any day.
Road 5 miles east of the reservoir is terrible. Ice is about 24 inches thick with about 4-6 inches of snow on top. Fishing is slow-poor.
