Ice Update

South Fork Reservoir - Elko, NV (Elko County)

by South Fork State Rec. Area

ICE UPDATE!...along with a sunrise and some wildlife, too, of course.
The lake is completely frozen, with an average of 7" of ice along the southwest shore. Ice thins significantly from the middle of the lake, heading toward the dam, and ACCESS IS NOT ADVISED in that area.
The warmer weather this coming week may cause some variability in ice conditions, so please use extreme caution!
I think we can all agree, yesterday's sunrise was stunning.
In addition to the bird counters spotting 10 eagles! (6 bald and 4 golden) in the park last week, one of our prickly pals also paid us a visit, along with about 45 of our resident deer now in their full winter fluff.
Have fun and be safe out there!
