Grand Lake Stream

Town News

Dave McCullough

Beautiful, clear, crisp and cold best describes the Grand Lake Stream conditions. In talking with a local guide in the area he reported that East Grand Lake was reporting 5 to 9” of ice. Most of the snow has blown off West Grand which creates the opportunity for ice to form quickly. The guide mentioned that he will be going out this week to drill holes and checking ice thickness etc. More details next week.
