Took a look at Topaz lake. Arrived at 1500 hrs 395 nnorth of Gardnerville was clear all the way. The road down to the Douglas County Park area was slightly covered with ice/snow mix. The good news is that the southern end had a sheet of ice on it, but the north shore was clear with waterfowl swimming the shoreline. It should hold for the opening day.....Jetspray

Did you notice how it looked at the turn-out by the bug station on the West side?

Sweet. I was gonna ask you if you want to go and take a look with me on Monday or Tuesday. Did you check out the ramp?

Yep the ice sheet started around the drop drive to the lake on that side. I would think that if the temp stays high (40-50) it will evaporate.....Jetspray

The park is blocked off by steel poles and no entry yet. I did not get a good look at the ramp. Another fellow was there with binoculars and he couldn't see either looked like the ramp was up.....Jetspray

The poles were up last year but they didn't seem to mind me walking down there to take a pic.

But on the other side *.... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me! *-- Woody Guthrie

I'v been looking at the weather and it looks like it's going to stay warm enough to keep the ice off for opener. Lets keep our fingers crossed. I hope the ramp will be ok to lanch from, got some new toys for Christmas to try out. [smiley=angling.gif]

The park ramp will be the only one open because the marina doesn't have enough water.

When you get there go down to the water's edge end of the ramp and see if you can see where the concrete ends. If you can it may be a little dicey. :-/
