I was up there today, Coyote ridge area. Bluebird day fishing in my t shirt. Ice was good where I was, right up to the shore so didn't even have to worry about getting my feet wet getting on or off. Lots of folks out there today, not so much on other parts of the lake. Ice did get soft on top as it warmed up later in the day. As I was driving and looked across from the north side, it did look like a good amount of open water at Cross Creek and I saw an ice hut set up at the mouth of Suckers.
Check the weather report and keep an eye on nighttime temps. Warm daytime temps are one thing, but if it doesn't get down below freezing at night, night after night, then the ice will go really fast.
Went to South Park yesterday to pick up some things from our cabin/home there.
The 11 mile Facebook rangers post Bionic Man put up is accurate.
I agree, late April or early May opening.
A lot of the snow has melted but still in the shaded or north areas.
At our place the temps have been around 32 in the mornings with highs in the low 60's.
Today at 530 am the temp was 39.
