    Default Lake Louise Ice

    I was wondering about Ice Conditions on Lake Louise. Normal years when can a guy start crossing the lake?

    A friend of mine went from Tyone to the lodges and pulled a boat trailer back with his wheeler a couple days ago. He is a local and understands conditions. Per the first known ice fishermen.... 6" of ice at Army Point. Snowmachines have made it to Cameron Cove.

    I won't risk it until at least the first week in Nov. Tree said earlier that it is snowing and he is worried about overflow. He also said mid-lake it might only be a couple inches thick.

    Just got a photo from a friend 2 hours ago and he was ice fishing and showing off his 15#er. He said the lake is closed up and ice is 10-12" thick out from the shore but was about 6" about a third of the way across the lake. He said very little snow and they were on 6 wheelers. He said no one has tried to cross the lake yet but should be any day.-13 below at noon...

    Hey Mike, I don't mean to alarm you, but take a look at your calendar. Mine says this IS the first week in Nov.

    Good info guys! I was also wondering about the neck between Susitna and the neck into Tyone. Do they tend o be worry spots?

    When you guys start seeing guys heading across please let me know.

    Always stick to the left side unless you absolutely know that it is safe. My first trip through there wasn't fun. Someone on a high HP machine dug over a foot into the overflow. It looked pretty ugly.

    I know one guy that has been to Tyone already across the ice.

    Walt, clear your inbox.

    Now Mike, what the hell does DLS have to do with being off by three weeks? Is daylight savings code for brown liquor?

    Just curious since they are usually warmer than us and not 20 degrees colder. No doubt everything is freezing up good so far with the lack of snow
