Warmer weather and snow (4 feet so far this year)  brought the Lake up to nearly 5 feet below normal high water. A few brave souls were on the ice fishing, but some regulars I talked to said there were two layers of ice separated by about 5 inches of water and they wouldn"t risk fishing under these conditions.

Lakes Highway District has done its usual great job on the road - meaning that the road is open, sanded and de-iced, but there is a high berm on both sides and no access to roads and driveways unless someone has shoveled or plowed them open.
