James --Sorry for the late reply. I don't check this forum often anymore. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I haven't been on the ice yet, but I'm sure the way the weather is turning that it won't be long. One thing for sure-- I won't be taking the grandson to St. Vrain as I read it is due to reopen in April or May. I'll have to find some other "easy place" to take him. Jim ( Brook King)
PS Go up to John sometime. It is loaded with good sized fish. I know, I know it's a long drive. Even from Longmont, it's a long drive.
