ITS TIME
« on: Jan 14, 2019, 10:55 AM »
This weekends forecast should get us kick started. Anyone know starting thicknesses? I know most of the areas i fish are skimmed over should be a solid 4" after fri/sat.

Yep Iím not going to hold my breath. Probably is going to get just cold enough to freeze everything and mess up the last week of duck season.

Not that it really means anything but the forecast after Monday looks to turn cold and stay cold for about 2 weeks.

skim ice at best in coves, nothing solid in any form. The weather forecast has been modified to now show highs of mid 40's as far out as it can go instead of highs at 32 and lows in teens. I see nothing promising in the forecast for this weekend, or future. Think its time to modify the boat for this new Livescope ive been anxiously waiting to use on the ice.

in short no.
there is no fishable ice on reservoirs in Kansas right now. I scouted both glen and wilson this past weekend and neither had ice that could support me 1 ft from shore, with lots of open water. Someone posted that the west end of wilson and hell creek had locked up. The ice is MAYBE 1/4" - 1/2" thick

There is no ice in KS.  No fish either.  Stay in Colorado!  Trout and perch is better than anything you'll catch in Kansas anyway.   ;D

Sorry A0fisher.  Colorado has been over run with people so the natives are gonna start heading ur way, or north.  There are lakes here where u go out and see 150 huts on a weekend trying to catch slime balls.  Not my cup of tea.  Tough ice season for sure, or lack there of

I was there from Thursday to sunday. Caught some nice WB the first day. Rest of the weekend all we caught was Jameson.  Ice was 2.5" on Thursday, 3.5 4" when we left on Sunday.  Fishing was slow overall for GE.

Fishing at Glen was extremely slow this weekend.  The ice was also starting to melt Saturday.  I don't know if it will hold given the warm temperatures on Sunday, and the winds today.  I heard from someone who went to Kirwin that it had no ice, certainly no fishable ice.

Go fish where ever you want.  I know lovetofishnow and was just messing with him.  Actually, I really did not understand why he came on here to ask about ice condition when I gave him ice condition earlier that day.  ???

I think I saw you you guys in the distance.  You guys were at your usual spot, closer to the bridge.  Funny anyone with any real information on this website is actually from Colorado, not Kansas...  ;D
