    Default Off ice reports 2011

    Is there going to be a subforum this year for ice off reports? its almost that time of year for the lower elavation interior lakes to start melting

    I was curious about that too, I'm glad someone brought it up. Ready to battle loons for 'bows again eh?

    The situation around Kelowna right now is pretty sad, especially with Wood Lake being iced over (which somehow happened in the middle of February??). Only open body of water I've seen lately is Okanagan Lake. How about Swan Lake in Vernon, is it still iced?

    i have been working in calgary all winter. i am coming back tomorrow and i was hoping that things where starting to melt. last year i remeber i fished a few times on my fishing license from the year before on hidden and baird lake, so they must have opened up at the end of march. but from what you are saying it dosent sound like that will happen this year. i have loaded up on gear hear in calgary and cant wait to use it this year. if wood lake is iced then im guessing swan is iced.

    I had a month and a half of fishing on my old license before I had to re-new last year. So far this year I have exactly 0 days fishing. It's only since the past weekend the weather has started to get a little bit warmer.

    wood lake will be open right now it never fully froze over, and shannon is not far away hoping by the end of next week it will be good to go. Was up ice fishing on another lake nearby and it is about a week or two away. The trout are sure active caught two in the 18" inch range nice and fat aswell won't be long can't wait to hammer out a leech into the open water

    woods is still frozen, there are a couple of open water patches. I drive by it twice a day. I saw 2 people in a boat fishing a wet patch about 100 yds in diameter.Round and round they go. The open water is close to the shore. two people in a boat, 12 people on the ice
