Expect a cold and snow this weekend and ice on the water. It is likely not safe enough to walk on, as last week there was thawing along the shore with the warm weather.

There is a Hwy 66 and Hyatt Lake Rd webcam that may help if you’re planning an adventure up here to cross country ski or snowshoe. Fishing is probably off the table for now.

All campgrounds and facilities are currently closed until further notice. More information on facilities can be found on Jackson County Parks website.

The reservoir is hovering at 8 percent ful
