Man I really want to get out there and hike a few miles for some fish. I am thinking about lakes that might be thawed enough to fish. What is the formula I wonder? I have fished lakes in August that were still partially ice covered, and others seem to thaw by end of May to first week of June. To me logic would dictate that is it a combination of factors like water depth, wind and sun exposure, and probably also inflow/outflow.

Just curious of anyone else experience with this. I have a few lakes that I know will be fishable soon, but I want to explore new water. Wondering if doing things like looking at Google Earth images might be helpful.
