Ice Watch, Take 2
The previous Ice Watch thread by SkunkedAgain was hijacked by duck hunters and is no longer functional, so I thought I'd start a new thread for those of us who want to stay focused on ice fishing.

That said, does anyone know whether there's ice on Scofield or any other lakes?

I would like to have current ice reports for Cleveland and Mammoth. Would like to drill some holes and wet a line Saturday. Tkanks

Don’t go by my word, but I would bet that those two reservoirs would be safe by the weekend with the recent low temps.
Just one more brookie........

Thank you for starting a new thread. Just did a drive-by at Pineview. Lake is 99.99% ice free. There a little ice forming in the shallow coves and the inlets but that is it.

At this point, if those two lakes freeze first then I'm going there to fish. In normal years we'd be well into ice fishing by now.

I think it'll be a while before Pineview is fishable.

I do most of my fishing on Flaming Gorge and some of the nearby lakes like Echo and Rockport, and sometimes at Fish Lake. One of my stepsons has a cabin at Scofield so I go there now and then, and it usually freezes over by the end of Nov so that's usually the first place I go to fish.

It had ice bergs yesterday and word is it's about completely covered with ice today. My local ponds are freezing slower than the last few years, may take a little longer to get safe ice this year. J

I'm looking forward to the ice on Mantua as well. In the mean time, can you still launch a boat there?

Mantua is iced over for the most part. I'm sure its not safe yet . The boat ramp is also frozen. So to answer your question about launching a boat -I would say no. I will post when I see people standing out there.

No ice at Scofield on Tuesday. It has been so cold it has to be capped but may not be safe yet.

According to udots website, Sr 35 is still open and the traffic cameras show mostly clear roads. You may be able to get to Mill hollow in a vehicle with 4wd. It had 7 inches of ice last week

Great Salt Lake is definitely capped over in most places, and now very hard to duck hunt....no drilling necessary, just a very heavy airboat....should you get a few nibbles, a size 4 in a ' Win or Rem' pattern work good, in red or green, or that smaller pattern in yellow is also effective....Guluk hunting, er, fishing....or Both! ....

Fished Cleveland today and bite was slow. About 5” clear ice. Very slick.
