Lake Arthur 2022/23
« on: Nov 22, 2022, 05:46 PM »
Another season is coming soon fellas!  This is not an ice report per se, just some pictures from the lake today that look promising.  Muddy Creek was capped to the mouth, prop area was capped to the mouth, and all the bays on the Old 422 leg were all capped.  We all know it will be gone by this weekend, but let's hope it comes back to stay soon.  Hope to see all my ice fishing dudes out there this year...fingers crossed for early ice!

6 trillion channel cats and 5" bluegills.

But seriously, pretty much all of the PA species.  Finding them is the hard part.

I imagine MC should be locked up this morning. Not sure it's going to be cold enough to be on the ice on christmas eve, but after Christmas weekend it may be go time if the weather holds

I just drove past the entirety of the lake. Most of it looks like it's capped. There appears to be at least an inch of rainwater on top of the ice. That makes it look like there's no ice, but I believe that should all free solid into hard black ice tonight with the lows. There are some patches of open water on the main body lake

There is a ton of rain water on the ice. And they're dumping at the overflow... I'm guessing they AGAIN waited for ice to form before lowering the lake

What are you guys thinking? Mid January? Safe ice? Looks like highs in 50's for few days after Christmas then back to cold with some promising lows!

Tried to drive down to upper 528 but a tree fell across the road. Walked 400 yards or so down to the launch. Looks like the wind blew all the rain water to the upper and lower 528 bank and it all froze into junk white ice. Spud out 50 feet and spud was going through in 2 hits. Was about 2 inches of snow sitting on the ice in most places. I would guess less then 3 inches of mostly white ice. Disappointed , between the snow and rain blown on that end of the lake I guess hurt the ice. Drove down to dead end and some sections open along the shore line. Ice was like a jigsaw puzzle sections of junk ice . Looks like it broke up and refroze yesterday maybe? Deep snow drift along the bank, over a foot in some sections. Big open sections near the church so didn't bother.
