Lakes Check: Today I got out to take a look at the ice conditions on Platte, Sullivan, Rock, and Bulldog. First stop was at the Platte/Sullivan channel; just as I thought this area has openned up a fair amount into Sullivan. It looked as if the water level was extremely low. I then went to Bulldog which is pretty much all iced up and not as dark as one would hope. Then I went to the Rock Lake access which got pushed up this winter; I am not sure if a boat could be launched over the big bump in the ramp or not. I will contact the DNR tommorrow to let them know about the problem. There was a little ice pull away from the shore at Rock, but the lake looks to be locked up for a while yet. My last stop was at Platte Lake which is still looking quite white as well even though there was some ice away from the shore. From our place it looked like the water levels on Platte are about back to normal. All in all it looks like it could be a while before we get open water in this area, especially with the cold weather predicted for this week. :(

It is weird that there is that much difference up by you vs. the metro. Ice has been off the lakes in Lakeville since March 26.
