Thinking of hitting Williams Fork on Thursday, anyone knows if the recent winds/warmer weather have made the ice unsafe? Also got skunked last year around this time, so if you have any suggestions on areas with good laker bites, would be grateful to learn them.

Ice will be fine. It was 11-12" of hard "glass" ice last weekend, and though it has hit nice high temps here in the last few days, it was 10deg colder up there, and below freezing for at least 1/2 of the day. Hopefully the cold/warm cycle has helped the snow atop the lake consolidate so that it isn't too slushy.
Fish early in the day (sunrise to 10am) for the best bite, and fish in 30-50 FOW.
