Thread: Skilak open?

  1. #1

    Default Skilak open?

    Is Skilak open at this time yet? Was thinking of floating the middle, but I'm guessing the ice is rotten and i don't want to drag my raft across it.

    Lake is still frozen, but the ice is very rotten.

    Checked it out yesterday, and the lower launch is still frozen as far as the eye can see.... the ice looks really rotten, but it will be a little bit until you can put a boat in there.

    Haven't been back Skilak loop, but drove through Cooper Landing 2 days ago and Kenai Lake is ice free sans a couple acre patch right in the center.

    I looked at Hidden yesterday as well, and it's still covered with ice. It also looks very rotten and unsafe, but still has a ways to go.

    This is what Skilak looked like a few days ago about a mile west of Cotton wood ck. A few black bears and a goat on the beaches.

    Skilak is wide open now, just in time for trout season to be CLOSED!
