East Lake is still iced over as of yesterday.
In fact, the high winds from earlier in the week pushed the ice back to the east side of the lake covering what I reported as open water on Monday when I did my scouting report from the lakes. Last evening when I went to check it out the ice was thin, and full of puddles and holes. One day of a warm breeze and it will be gone.
Boat ramps and campgrounds are likely 2 or 3 weeks away from melting enough to use. This gives a lot of opportunity to the tubers and shore anglers coming up maybe as early as Monday or Tuesday.
I will be back up there Monday and will report what I see Monday evening.
