    I heard from a couple buddies that there is still some ice floating around on 12 but you should be able to get a boat in on the south end. 3 had less ice all winter so I wouldn’t be surprised if that is completely open. Not a clue about Icaria. My guess is you are going to have trouble getting anyone to spill the beans if they are on a good walleye bite down there. You will probably just need to go out on a limb and head down there and try it for yourself. Im sure you will find open water to get your boat in.

    PS. I didnt know Green Valley had eyes in it. Did they stocks some in there after they drained it?

    As to my knowledge GV doesnt have eyes in it, unless they did put some in there once it was drained.

    I know Summit below GV has eyes in it, but dont think GV does, yet i have been wrong before.

    FWIW,

    By the weekend of the 6th you should be ice free. I would shocked if any of those lakes still have ice on them by then.

    just saw the DNR fishing report. Sounds like the lakes are half open down there right now.

    Drove by Summit (if it is the one below GV) week and a half ago and couldn’t see much water at all! Weeds every where.

    Summit has been dry for two years. It is just now re-filling. There is no fish in it. Green Valley has eyes in it.

    Sweet. I was not aware of that. IMO they should stock eyes in almost every lake in IA. They are as popular of a species as any to chase and they are not invasive……….Too bad they are not invasive and dont reproduce like carp;-)

    Agreed, They Stock The Rivers Withcrazy Amounts Of Walleyes, And They Are Stock Amd Take, Why Not Any Of The Decent County Lakes? A Lot Of TheM Are Plenty Deep For Eyes To Survive.

    Was by 3 mile on Wed. Lake was open with ice in the coves. Needs to get warmer for me to do any fishing.
