Curious as to state of the ice for the Mile and Antero. Still have the itch to get on the ice one last time. Any update would be appreciated.

That is what I saw for their report last week. They haven't updated it for this week yet.

It will melt in due time my friend. I've never iced later than March; so, thought with the amount of ice we've seen this year would try and take advantage of it.

Hell, Blue Mesa will have decent ice thru April in my opinion.

I went up there last week and only the inlet was ice free. May check it out again this weekend then go to the canyon.

Sweet! A conditions report would be much appreciated.

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.

Just call up to the guard station... I've bugged them a few times in the past about ice conditions and have never gotten cussed out.

I was up at Antero on Saturday (April 6th) with my son. The ice there was about 20" in most spots with no open water.

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.
