Yat: Sorry I got hung up at work this afternoon so I didn't make it over to Walden, but maybe tomorrow. I did find that I miss-read what the CO Division of Wildlife was saying on their web site. Today was the first time since last fall for an update. Here is what they said today:
North Delaney Lake - Some open water has appeared in the west end, and the remaining ice appears to be receding fairly quickly. Ice fishing is not recommended, but long-rod fishermen might do OK in the open water.
East Delaney Lake - The lake is essentially free of ice, but a cold night still can form a skim. Fly fishermen casting streamer flies have been doing well as the lake opens up. A slowly retrieved crankbait or marabou jig also might do the trick.
Lake John - The lake remains ice-covered except for the very north end, which is not yet fishable. Ice fishing is not recommended. The ice has taken on a distinctive, storm-cloud-gray color, suggesting it soon will be disappearing. As usual, conditions can quickly change with the weather.
South Delaney Lake - The lake was largely ice-covered last weekend, with a little open water in the southwest corner. Remaining ice is considered unsafe and ice fishing is not recommended. Open-water areas should expand quickly, barring a return of cold weather.
Statewide Conditions - Colorado Division of Wildlife
Assuming this storm headed our way doesn't freeze things back up it should be fishable this weekend. I'm going to head out there myself if the wx doesn't get too bad.
