Day-Use: Open.
Surface:  Frozen

Ice is Never 100% Safe! — Do not judge ice safety on thickness alone. Ice does not form or maintain a uniform thickness. Snow, wind, slush, temperature, and other factors can cause ice thickness and strength to vary greatly, even within inches. Recreate on ice at your own risk and verify ice thickness as you head out. Click here to learn more ice safety tips.

Launch Ramp: Closed, due to extremely low water level. ATV’s and snowmobiles are not allowed on the ice this year. This is due to not being able to access the ice from the concrete boat ramp.

Campground: Closed, due to snow depth. The drinking water is turned off for the season.  
Ice Thickness: 14″+ use caution any time you venture out on the ice. 
Water Level: 0%
Water Temp: 30
Fishing Conditions: DWR attempted to conduct a Bluegill salvage on 2/11/19. It was found many fish were dead and those that were alive were directly under the ice. It looks like the fish are succumbing to low oxygen levels. DWR cut some 4 foot by 4 foot holes in the ice in an attempt to let more fresh water under the ice instead of it flowing over the surface of the ice. Be cautious near these holes which have been marked if you decide you want to venture out on the ice. On January 1, 2019, normal fishing regulations went back into effect.

*As of September 10, 2018, the water level dropped below the boat launch ramp for dam repairs. Due to this, access to the ice is limited to foot traffic only. Construction is scheduled to allow for the water level to begin filling Fall 2019.
