I found this and its a good read, why we are waiting for some ice around home Lake Petenwell area. Glad that the lake did not lock up before this snow.We have around 6.5 inches on the ground and still snowing http://www.outdoorcanada.ca/How_Fast_Does_Your_Lake_Make_Ice

your thoughts are probably right. The freezing point of 3% salinity seawater is still only 28F and that's 100x or more the salt content of most freshwater. But let us know if your buddy Dr. Cooper has any other thoughts on the topic.

1234567890, I sent an E-Mail to my good friend Dr. Sheldon Cooper on the subject of "Phenomena of Freezing Point Depression" and I am awaiting his response. My thoughts are the concentrations would have to be so high it would make the water uninhabitable for fish. I am thinking of examples such as Ethylene Glycol(antifreeze) and road salt Etc.........

This is cool. I wonder how much the projection lines are shifted based on the presence of dissolved solids in the water. In theory even a very small concentration of mineral/solids/ionic content can lower the true freezing temperature a few degrees.
