Glendo Ice

Post By: ICE-DAWG      Posted: 12/21/2016 8:59:32 AM     Points: 67    
Hey community, I'm hoping to check out this lake for ice fishing for the first time over Christmas break. Any tips or information is much appreciated! also looking to break away from the normal trout fishing and trying to get into some Walleye through the ice so any techniques or tips on that for this lake would be swell as well. Happy holidays and tight lines!

Sounds like a fun weekend

I would start by finding structure and/or drop off and humps.
Spoons of gulp minnows or live minnows.

Start at the top of the hump and work your way down. 20 fow give it take 10'

Awesome thanks for the info guys! I wasn't sure if live minnows were allowed or not so that helps a ton!

The last I heard was muddy had 9 inches of ice. The shallow areas 40 fow and less have 9 ish inches. Main body just capped so it is close I just don't know if it's thick enough

Muddy is ready with the most ice. There is a little water on the edges.
There have been people all over the shallow parts of the lake this week.

Anyone catching fishing at Glendo? If so what are the ice conditions?
 Reply by: culinarypunk      Posted: 1/12/2017 3:05:54 PM     Points: 82061    
Ice is at least 7 inches everywhere except the first few yards from shore which is slushy. 7-13 inches depending on water depth
