mcgeer - I was out this last weekend. Closer to Sturgeon/Merkle vs Fisherman's landing.

Had 8-10 inches of solid/good ice.

Not much snow out there, but there should be enough for you to get around on an ATV/snowmobile.

Can anyone give any updates around Fisherman's area? What's the ice and/or snow depth? Heading up after Christmas!!

I had 6” on a Mercer area lake at thanksgiving, so I wouldn’t doubt 8 or more by now.  We were taking the atv out.  This wasn’t the flowage though, I’m sure all that rain really pumped up the current.

Found an app called Ice Report (clearly used more in MN).

User 'brock' posted 8.5 inches in Mercer today. Can anyone verify if that's true?

A solid 6" on the north end of the flowage this weekend.  A couple of small northerns, some decent perch, eyes were a no show.  Looking at the forecast some serious ice making to occur.

Thinking of heading up the weekend of the 15th. Any ice updates would be greatly appreciated.

bretrobert:

Talked with a friend during an insurance meeting, he was chasing whitefish and told me the shelf ice had started on Trout recently.  After opening weekend I’ll be back up and will be testing some ice.  I suspect there are the normal early ice places available to fish

Appreciate the the ice updates on the Flowage. Unfortunately, based on the forecast, what's not covered in ice out there (if anything isn't) will most likely be after the weekend. Disappointing. This is the 2nd straight year the Flowage has locked up early.

If any of you drive by LDF/Trout or any of the other big, deep lakes - updates on those would be appreciated as well.

Still have open water on at least half of the Baraboo lake area.

Back bays are frozen over, but barely. Have had light snow on top of soft new ice.  Looks very "mushy". 

Can't recommend travel on the ice right now.
