Hi Legerski,

Last Friday we fished Glendo with the boat.  We put in at Reno and one other boat put in at Whiskey.  The water temp was 36 degrees - air temp was 17 degrees.  It was CHILLY out there.  With this cold, there should be ice, but I would be real careful going all the way across to the mountain.  I'll bet the bays will be okay.  Did you ever do any good through the ice in Whiskey, Elkhorn, Muddy?  Several years back, I heard of some fish caught through the ice in Elkhorn, but I have only ice fished at the mountain.  You might call the Trading Post in Glendo.  They might know the ice conditions and they might have minnows.  Haven't been in Howards, but the electronic sign out front says "minnows" on it.  Let us know if you find out anything.  I'll do the same.

Be safe,
Keith

That's a good idea.  You can get to some nice water without walking too far.  For what it's worth, last year we did good with jigging raps.  They are a bit expensive if you lose them in the rocks and there are lots of rocks, but we fished several times and never even bothered with minnows.  Got lots of small fish and a few to eat most every time.  Sure would like to get a few perch - that's my favorite - lightly breaded and deep fried!  Man, if I keep thinking like that, I might have to give it a try Friday or Saturday.

Good fishing,
Keith

I would be real careful - last wednesday I went through and there was some ice on the shallows in the NW, but it was still open through the river channel and the rest of the main lake viewable from the Interstate.  I was heading through last night around midnight and, though I couldn't see the water, it was the warmest stretch of road at 19F, when I left Denver it was -8 and  -1 when I arrived in Casper.   But if it the water was 36F last Friday it may could be forming great this week - but I definately stay away from the main channel.
wishin I was ice fishin

Im planning to make a couple trips to Glendo over the break.  Finally can squeeze a trip or two in.  Thinking about the night of the 27 (saturday) through the morning of the 29 (monday).  And then again for most of a day and part of the night on New Years Day.  If any one is interested in getting together let me know it would be fun to get a big group together.

Todd,
Fishing was real slow.  We caught one 18"walleye and a few carp.  We blamed the combination of full moon and the large quantity of dead and crippled shad minnows - I guess that is as good a thing to blame as any.

We are going to go up tomorrow to see if we can get on the ice.  Like Legerski suggested, we are going to try the area at the dam.  We won't have to venture way out from shore like going from Reno across to the mountain.  That would worry me until we have more cold weather.  I'll let you know about the ice tomorrow evening.

Keith

Did it look like they drove across from Reno?  Any reports coming in, would be great.  Planning a trip in the middle of January, should be safe ice by then?
