If you are planning to launch a boat, just leave it at home. Only open water is a small hole out in front of dam, no ramps useable right now due to ice cover. Warm weather and wind will start to break it up soon but not as of this morning.

I hear ya. I may have to make an attempt to stockton or below the dam at Truman just to fish, don't care if I catch anything or not. I cross Pomme dam every morning and evening on way to and from work. The patch of water was a little larger this morning but not much yet. Gonna be a while yet.

the ice is 6 inches thick at hermitage ramp.....lets see...two inches a day if it stays above freezing? That is the rule of thumb I learned growing up in Iowa. But who knows...

The snow melt is raising the lake level and the fresh water ring around the ice was skimmed over with ice this morning, and it never got below freezing last night, that water is COLD. The ice is looking very rotten on the main lake, if it gets enough open area to begin to flex in the wind it will break up, but the coves will be a while.
