    Water Lower Than Hole???

    So I was out fishing Yankee Hill on Sunday (slow) and the water was 1-2” below the edge of the ice. Does that have something to do with the barometric pressure? Thanks

    My first thought would be that the Corps opened up the spillway gates ahead of the rain forecast

      Another possibility is that the top 1-2 inches of "ice" was just a localized high spot of previously fallen snow that's been melted and re-frozen a few times, but the other explanation that has been offered makes sense as well.

        If the barometric pressure is ever that much, we will all have headaches.

        You all know ice floats.

        When ice accumulates on a waterbody, it can add thickness on the bottom, and on the top.

          Just an FYI from a scientific point of view, Ice without any other forces acting on it tends to float naturally with approximately 9% of its mass above water line
