I got this from another message board. All credit goes to the person who first posted it.
I was told by one of the park rangers this morning that Chatfield will open to boats on February 12. Yee-ha!!!
The lake is completely ice free except for a small patch of rotten ice down near the inlet.
Let the walleye season begin!!!
I also drove over by Cherry Creek, Quincy and Aurora Res. Cherry Creek is about 90% open with ice only along the west shore and boat ramp. Shouldn't be long there. Quincy appeared to be completely ice free- I'm not sure when it opens. Aurora is still 95% ice covered. The only open water is a small area along the dam. The ice that there is looked rotten where I could see it.
