The lakes, especially larger ones like Willow Springs, should be clear of ice except around the edges. Fishing is reportedly fair to good, using power bait and lures, but I'm no fisherman.
Supposed to be a storm coming in this Thursday that will drop some more snow. Had about 10 in. around forest Lakes but most of it is melted off now. Might be a muddy, sloppy hike, but take the snowshoes just in case. I usually wait until there's a foot or more of snow before I use snowshoes. A sled, or pulk, would be good to carry in gear.
You can be wet and miserable, or you can choose to just be wet.
