Frazil Ice should be forming around this time and continuing through early April. You may try calling the park directly to find out when the icy/water mix begins to accumulate in waterfall-fed streams, but I was not able to reach someone today to check for you directly. The accumulation of Frazil Ice is determined by weather conditions in the park reaching certain temperatures in the daytime, which may not begin for another couple of weeks.

For those of you who are not familiar, the National Park Service and Yosemite Fund (now the Yosemite Conservancy) put together a video on Frazil Ice that you can watch on YouTube.
