Cool When is average ice off at Granby?

I haven't fished Granby for a while and the last time was in July I think.

I want to plan a trip to Granby after ice off when the big ones are up shallow. Any help would be great!

I've found large openings to fish from shore as early as right now. May have to hike thru waist-deep snow but it can be done.

As Zman said the beginnining of May is a good average, it varies each year depending on how many spring storms we get. We had abnormally warm temps in February and the snow was melting fast. March brought some Snowstorms and colder temps but we are now back in melting mode.
BTW theres still a few large fish left in Granby, most of the remaining ones just went through higher education and got tired of being caught.

We're talking Granby Bro, there are 0 openings from shore now, try back in a month.

I saw published somewhere that over the last 30 years, April 30 has been the average ice of date. Last year it was early/mid April. I'm hoping for the same because I'm planning on my first weekend to be April 30.

We're gonna need some heavy duty global warming for early to mid April.
I'm out here right now sitting on 2' of ice with snow cover and the forcast is for snow the rest of the week.
You may be able to get a boat in by April 30th if your lucky.
