There was ice a few weeks back.  Not sure about now.  Give Coulee Playland a call if you don't get a reply here.  +1 509-633-2671

South end for sure is still solid ice, save for a few of the bays.

North end is wide open.

How about Lenore?  Any ice at the north end?

was breaking up pretty well when I went by a week age, but it's been a week. Suspect it might be open now as Temps have hit mid 40s everyday since.

Its thawed now except for a little on the south end two days ago. Also  i was hearing it was dropping but it was as high as i have ever seen it. The canal was full but not flowing.

Well, we did make it out there this weekend.  Got there Saturday night just before dark and did pretty well.  Picked up 4 fish before dark on black and red Balanced Leeches.

I think this is actually the biggest fish I've landed out there since I was in high school back in the 80s.  Had to be over 25" (I didn't put a tape to her).

Then, of course, we went back the next morning and got absolutely skunked (along with about 6 or 8 other guys).  Fished from 8:30am until noon without so much as a hit.  Oh well... at least we had one good evening.
