the raft had over 6 inches of ice on the shore side of the island when i went over a week ago. guy was snowmobiling at the time. crocker had 6+ inches of ice as long as you weren't too close to the open water. beacon cove has thick ice, same witha couple of the marinas i've been to in scs. thats all the first hand knowledge i have. i'm sure the ice is plenty safe in other areas too though

Where the sheets haven't drifted apart throughout this past week it is about 4 inchs to 6 inchs closer to shore.

However, the areas that are between the sheets are only about one inch thick. I'd say you got a least two weeks of sub freezing temperatures before taking a car out on the ice.

For what it's worth there were a couple four wheelers and snowmobiles on the ice around The Raft and the Fair Haven launch yesterday and today.

Do not take that to mean it is or is not safe. I am just reporting what I saw and you should use your own judgment when deciding what is safe or not.

its think enough to walk on, and thin enough to fall through!!!! i was riding on salt river last week, but didnt go past the bridge under jefferson. it all seemed to be thick ice. but i heard theres open water still between jefferson and the lake, so certain areas are different. if your looking to go in fair haven, just wait til you see to many cars to count, this is my "safe" ice test. but again and again.........its your call of what SAFE is.

I was on a canal off the Clinton R. this afternoon in the area of S. River & Jefferson and there was an easy 5-6 inches. saw thousands of shad and only a few perch.
