Have a report that people have been ice fishing on Sprague Lake, not sure of the quality of the ice though. Will probably give Silver Lake a try tomorrow and follow up with an update.

"Those trying to fish the winter lakes opener found some open water in the middle of Hog Canyon but not enough ice to venture out. On Wednesday, I found it to be frozen all the way to the end. Ice at the access was about 3 inches thick. My guess is Hog Canyon will be fishable through the ice by the weekend, but be sure to drill test holes as you venture out. You needn’t go far from shore. Trout on Hog Canyon will be a variety of sizes with the likelihood of catching a limit of five before catching two more than 14 inches.
Fourth of July anglers found open water on the opener on the west side from the first narrows south. Plunking Power Bait from shore enticed numerous rainbow to 22 inches with few smaller than 14 inches. On my visit Wednesday, there was no one fishing, but a short walk confirmed open water on the west side where shore fishing would be possible. By Saturday, there may be ice fishing. Again, test the ice frequently.
I also stopped at Eloika and Silver lakes on Wednesday. Eloika has an ice cap, but the ice appeared to be only a couple of inches thick. Eloika is shallow and protected from the wind. It could be ready by the weekend. Silver was iced over on the north and south ends with open water in the middle. The bay in front of the public access had clear ice about 2 1/2 inches thick 10 feet from shore.
There were no reports from either Williams or Hatch lakes, but it must be assumed that considering their small sizes and their more northerly location, they will support ice fishermen. The trout in both lakes are healthy, running from 11-17 inches with a few even larger."
