i have heard that with cold temps that some lakes can gain as much as 1 inch of ice a day on them, don't know how true it is.. i just know that right before ice on i am praying that it is and i'm watching the temps.. i have also heard that one good cold clear night with no wind can completely ice over a lake.then once it is covered then it gets thicker...
i ice fished mcall two years ago , caught 10 channel cats, 3 perch and lots of rainbows, a ranger told me that that the city dosent allow ice fishing on mccall anymore , but i heard earlier when we had good ice that there was people on it
Boyd has 3 inches and is fishing...8 guys out there yesterday.
Lake loveland is the same but nobody fishn.
Thats all I checked out.
Nothing like being able to get off work at 3 and getting a few hours of hardwater fishing on the front range! ;D
WE WERE ON BOYD YESTERDAY, THE FISHING WAS GREAT . CAUGHT 7 FISH BIGEST WENT 2 LBS. THE ICE IS REAL THIN. THE GUY I WENT WITH YESTERDAY CALLED TODAY AND WENT BACK OUT TODAY. CAUGHT 10 MORE REALLY NICE ONES. HE SAID THEY WERE BIGGER THAN THE ONES WE CAUGHT YESTERDAY .
I disagree, as long as the wind doesn't get to blowing too hard. With lows in the teens at night we should have ice for a while in the marina at Boyd. I was at the inlet pipe yesterday and there was about 4" in that area. I am careful not to get too close to the pipe because it can get thin real fast there. We caught four nice Bows, but no Bluegill or Perch. Bows were really hitting hard--it was fun.
I hit boyd on the way home sunday night to check it out and was happy to find safe ice. I had no more mealies left so I used some of the pink powerbait in my box. Suprisingly enough I caught a trout. To dark to identify so I'm calling it a golden trout! ;D
Went again yesterday. Ice was 3-4 inches give or take and caught the skunk-o!
