    Default What Mat-Su lakes are ice free now?

    I drove by Wasilla Lake the other day and noticed it was almost ice free (if not totally ice free by now) and a couple days before that I checked Biglake and noticed it was starting to open up on the edges in certain areas.

    So, I am just curious if you guys know of what other lakes are now ice free and able to put a boat or canoe in and go. Specifically the Mat-Su area.

    For those who care, I just ran over and checked and Biglake hasn't changed to much from last week. A little more open water but not much. Ran over and tried to check Rocky lake but it is still closed up (gates closed) but looked frozen from the road.

    Mean while I hear Finger lake, Wasilla lake and I think it was Lucille lake are all ice free.

    Anyone sure that Finger Lake is open? Thinking of taking the boat out and getting into some rainbows.
