Any ice left at Bear Creek? I was hoping to get out there this Sat or Sun. Hoping the cold snap this week will solidify things a bit.

It was wide open before this cold snap. I read a report that it was covered in skim ice this morning. I would be very cautious going ice fishing this weekend.

went out and checked it today, the whole lake is capped but ice appears to be pretty thin. with the colder temps this week theres a good chance it will be ready by the weekend.contrary to the ice experts on the other site a lot of the front range lakes are refreezing and may have a fishable lid later in the week. as always be really careful but i also plan on being there this weekend.ps i did walk out about five ft so its more than just skim ice.

no snow just clear ice. thats why i think it will be ready by the weekend. i was out there saturday and it was wide open so the whole lake capped in just one day, i for one can't wait.

It would be amazeballs if we can fish local ice again! All lakes that I drove by today had a cap and with the predicted temps, we may have a chance to ice local soon!

This would be great but I'm not holding my breathe on local ice being fishable. Hope I'm wrong!

I dont think itll be safe in the middle of chatty or crack, but Im sure some bays will be thick enough!

Maybe the south end of Chatty....... maybe.

Doesn't north end freeze first? I feel you though...I rather fish the south end.

I'm hoping for Big Soda or some of the smaller ponds. Don't think I'd walk to the middle of big body of water but bays and coves might be good to go!!!!
