Was at Rifle10 days ago and the ice was up to 12" and the edges were good, but it was 68 degrees today in GJ so you would need a long plank to get on Harvey.

Edges are blown out , ice is rotting fast. Hasn't dropped below freezing here in over a week. If you can get on I would expect the ice to be ok, but not for long. Monday Rifle still had 10-12", the top 4-5 was soft and brittle. I needed a 8ft plank to get on. A 12ft plank would of made it alot easier.

Last Saturday Harvey was perfect, but with this weather I figured it would be done for.

Looks like it will stay warm for the next 7 days, so Rifle & Harvey are probably done.

Here's what Rifle looks like. Open water on the east end past Cottonwood campground. Cloudy green ice with 10ft wide cracks, 15ft of open all around it.

This may be the earliest ice off ever. I've seen it come off as late as the end of April. Looks like it is full. Rifle should be full now, as well.

I was just fishing open water at Hattie. Good bit of open water already. Freaky.

This is Rifle and it is spilling. Harvey looked about the same and it close to full.

Thanks WS I see now that it is RG. A little wind might just open it up.
