    don't know about ice thickness, guessing around 30". Trails messy- use a snowmachine, no four wheelers- its too soft for a quad.

    Default Well how did you do?

    My wife Kathy and I went to Trapper Lake yesterday and caught a couple of little ones, but we stopped by Houston Lodge and had them weighed for the Mat-Su Pike Derby just the same. They have prizes for biggest, littlest, ugliest, etc... Ice was about 24" thick and it was a beautiful 40 degree day. Trail was still in excellent condition from Susitna Landing.
