Large areas of dark ice with standing water in others. Along shore 3 inches of soft white ice and 1 inch of good clear ice underneath with several inches of slush on top.

For more information on the ice conditions on the above lakes call the Lake Darling Fisheries Station at (319) 694-2430

UNSAFE. Most of the ice is turning to a dark blue green color. Areas of open water on the north side and around the jetties.

It looks more like a 3 inch thick layer of Styrofoam. It is very week and very hard to judge thickness out in front of you.

During the first day hike the lake was entirely ice free. On Jan 3 the lake was about 30% ice covered but the wind and above freezing temps were eating the ice pretty fast.

Be careful if you use the boat ramps the air temperature is right at the point where splashing water is freezing on the concrete of the ramp. The docks have been pulled for the winter.

Rain in the forecast should melt the ice off with the warmer weather that is also in the forecast. Both boat ramps are currently iced in (12/21).

A majority of the lake is ice free. The campground boat ramp is still froze in. Continued warm weather will melt most of the remaining ice.
