Here you go! Some "Early Ice" standings from our early cold snap and some high country action. Temps have been a little warm lately to get things going at lower elevations.
Dec. 1 Update - We're seeing ice slowly beginning to develop and a few more fish have been posted. Attached is the update as of Dec. 1. I plan to update the standings table once a week depending on the number of fish posted. Shoot me a PM or reply here if you have any questions/suggestions/requests for tracking the Challenge. Have fun! Be safe. Ron
I like it when you update on Mondays. Many people have caught and posted fish over the weekend. Plus, it gives me something to look forward to on what might be a let-down Monday. In any case, I appreciate the work you put into this.
Thanks Craig. I agree with you. Mondays are good days for an update. I will generally try to stick to that.
Dec. 15 Update - Slowly, we keep adding fish. Enjoy!
[#ff0000]Dec. 22 Update - Here's an update and wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Fishing. I hope you can get out over the holidays and enjoy some ice fishing. I'm looking forward to your posts. Ron[/#ff0000]
Dec. 29 Update - It's good to see some ice on our larger reservoirs now. Some nice cutthroat from Strawberry Res. and pup lake trout from Flaming Gorge being posted this week. Happy Fishing and wishing you a Happy New Year. Ron
Jan. 2 Update - Things are beginning to shake up! We have had quite a few fish posted the last few days and several contestants getting "on the board" so I thought it would be good to provide an update before the weekend. Enjoy, have a great weekend and Happy Fishing!
Jan. 12 update - Kind of a slow week for fish posts.
Jan. 20 Update - We have had some good size trout posted this week. joatmon remains in the lead and has posted 9 species. Happy fishing!
Jan. 27 Update - We have had some movement in the standings this week with a few nice panfish (perch and crappie) a nice 14" smallmouth by T-Boz and a 23.5" channel catfish posted by wiperslayer1. kentofnsl moves up to second and joatmon is still hanging on to the top. Enjoy. Happy Fishing!
Feb. 2 Update - We have a new leader this week with wiperslayer1 posting a 20" 'bow. Combining that with his 13.5" perch and 23.5" channel cat, puts him in the lead. TopH2O joins the board posting a 16" Strawberry Kokanee and Joatmon adds another specie to our list and the smallest fish posted so far with a 4" Spottail shiner from Willard. Have a great week. Happy fishing. Ron
Feb. 9 Update. Nice Willard collection posted by EyLayo and channel catfish by Jig-fisher. Enjoy.

Hey Jeff - I am back. I think. Still trying to figure this all out. I'll get the standings of the Ice Fishing Challenge updated ASAP. 
Update - March 3 - Here is a first update after migrating to the new site. We are definitely winding down. I hope you have a chance to get out before the end of this seasons Challenge (Sunday March 15th). The standings table looks great with this new format. I hope I captured all the posts during our break. Send me a message if I missed something. [attachment=32]
March 8 Update - EyLayo, kentofnsl and SkunkedAgain (Jeff) made it to the Gorge last week. EyLayo iced a very nice 38 1/2" Laker to edge him into the lead over Kent. Our first burbot of  the season were finally posted. One by EyLayo and another by Jeff. We are on the home stretch. This is the final week for the Ice Challenge and it ends at mid-night Sunday March 15th. I'll update and announce the winner Monday March 16th. Have fun and be safe.
