Default Chatfield ice update

I just drove by Chatfield on C470 a couple of hours ago and it appeared to be completely ice covered, from the NW marina cove all the way across the lake. I'm sure that ice out in the middle isn't safe yet, but it will be growing thicker every day now!

Sweet! Thanks for the update. The question now is if it gets fishable will it stay that way.

Hell Standley Lake is mostly frozen. That doesn't happen much this time of year! However be careful out ther if you go! Don't let the cold snap fool ya! Good luck to the locals!

I fished the boat cove today and it was about 2 1/2-3 inches. 5 or 6 dark spots that looked sketchy. No fish in the hour we fished but did see a guy in an orange suit catch a couple of stocker bows. Didn't check any other areas on the lake. Be careful.

Wow, thanks for taking the time Don to drive by on 470 and look out the window to see some ice on the lake. This is so helpful! Who would want to know how thick the ice is and where? Please, keep these kinds of informative and quality posts coming forever, and don't ever change.

No, I would have notice that
I just thought I'd give Don a little grief for what I think was a lame post. It's been below freezing lately, of course there's going to be some ice cover on the lake. You don't even have to be in your car driving by the lake to know that much. Lake 1177 made a good post the other day about the ice at Chatty. He actually was there and got of his car, drilled some holes, and fished!
But hey, maybe there are plenty of people besides myself that like to hear about things from the windshield of a car or the comfort of a desk chair.
That's just my .02 cents worth.
