Making good ice, but be aware out there
The snow is a relief to see for most winter outdoor enthusiasts. Skiers, cross-country skiers and snowmobilers can finally start getting on with their winter season. Ice anglers have been stalled by the El Niño effects and the jet streams lack of cooperation to bring that cold arctic...

This snow shouldn’t harm the ice-making process
Ice anglers getting excited and ready for the upcoming hard water season are a little disappointed to get the first snowfall as soon as we did after getting most lakes iced up. It was also a disappointment to have it as wet and heavy as it was. No worries. The wet and heavy snow will...

Clean up after yourself, get ice houses off and be careful on the ice
First, just a reminder that Monday, March 16, shelters need to be removed from the lakes north of Highways 10 and 34. It looks like most anglers took advantage of the nice weekend last weekend to get most of the houses off the lakes. There are still some shelters out, and for those...

Good ice-making but challenging fishing
It seems like a long time since we have gone into a new year with no snow on the ground. Every season seems to have a new twist making them all unique. With the lack of snow cover and the recent extreme cold snap, the lakes have had a chance to continue to make ice. We have great...
