Valentine National Wildlife Refuge - General ice report 13 Jan 2022. Drilled several holes on the west end of Hackberry Lake in the evening of 12 Jan; ice was 6 to 9.5", thinner near the north shore. Open water can still be seen on Clear, Dewey, Hackberry and Watts lakes. Ice fishers have been observed on Clear, Dewey, Duck, Rice, Pelican, and Watts lakes. Temperatures have been above freezing since 10 Jan, and are forecast to stay above freezing until tomorrow afternoon (14 Jan), so there is melted water on top of the ice and very spring-like ice conditions.

Valentine National Wildlife Refuge - General ice report 04 Feb 2022. Drilled holes at Hackberry yesterday evening with 6-7" of good, clear ice; didn't have time to check other lakes but there were a good number of folks out on Dewey. Warm and windy weather on Tues (01 Feb) had opened substantial holes on Willow, Dewey, Pelican, West Long, Clear, Hackberry, and Watts. Cold temperatures Tue night-this morning have mostly frozen over these holes but fishers should be aware of potentially uneven ice conditions.
