I did not get to see it first hand but the western bay was pretty much all ice December 8. This am I drove over the bridge and I did not see any open water in the northern end of the lake. I am calling the Catfish Lake Ice-Up on Thursday December 8. A bit overdue but we have some real cold stuff in the forecast. We should be making a lot of ice in the next week. This is a photo looking west from Deer Point.
