Im hearing a few inches with open water still. Im trying to get a pic from a pal that lives up there.

Any predictions on the perch size and population this year?

Heard from some guys that fished it. Perch are large but few and far between. Didn't hear on ice thickness but they will fish any ice that will hold them. Hope they just fished a so so spot and the perch numbers increase. Harvey kicked out a lot of numbers for perch last week and the sie was mixed. Two guys caught 70 perch with 11 of them over 10". Couple pike in the 24" range on tip ups. Big smallie 3 pounds or so caught near the damn at Harvey.

Fished Rifle Gap twice last week. It is frozen except for the east end. Most of the lake had 5" but there is a spot east of the dam that froze late and only had a couple of inches. Most perch were 32 to 38 feet deep. Nothing over 8 inches. Talked with a guy who caught a 13.75 perch on Tue last week.
