That's definately some ice making temps. I'm sure there's a skiff somewhere up there

 Those temperatures do sound pretty good! I will be down in about 10 days. Might have to bring some gear and bum a ride.  ;D

was up there yesterday 10-13. all the small ponds were freezing and staying mostly froze all day. the bigger lakes are getting ice on the edges. the biggest lake that i seen that was almost fully capped was clegg lake. it was just a skiff but there was ice all the way across. its cold up there!!!  i would guess early early November if weather stays like this.

I went back up today and all the ice is gone. lakes have been blown open and the wind was still ripping through the trees today. Hopefully we can be on ice in two weeks. i thought with finding an inch last week on all but two lakes there would be 2 inches up there but the wind had other plans. it was in the low 20's when i got up there and no ice to be found.  >:( >:( >:( ???

its definitely cold up there. was up there Friday afternoon  and water was freezing on my fly rod eyes almost instantly. shouldnt be long thats for sure. hopefully the snow storms stay away just long enough to hike into a few lakes for some ice fishing   ;D

Thanks for keeping us posted on conditions in the high country! As soon as I hear you guys have ice, I will take a trip up into the  Big Horn Mountains and check it out as well. Definitely will post some pictures of some nice little Brooktrout!

slush on top of the lakes but no ice it will all freeze this week with these low temps coming up. the snow up there is getting deep. I made it up before anyone else and before the plows and had to make it through about 6in of snow that fell last night.
