ice fishing

Cautions are being sounded in many parts of Wyoming for those who would engage in ice fishing or other activities on the state’s frozen lakes and ponds.  With the unseasonal warm temperatures, state officials and fishing outfitters are telling of ice thicknesses that may not yet be sufficient for such activities.  However, Grand Teton National Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says reports from Jackson Lake have been the exception. Skaggs says the lake currently has about 12 inches depth of ice.  However, she adds that there is a flooded layer of about two inches of water with about two inches of snow on top in some areas of the lake.  Still, Skaggs says those venturing out onto the ice should always be cautious, know the lake, and avoid areas with a grayish appearance as they indicates where there is water under the snow. As yet, Skaggs says it does not appear people have been using snowmobiles as yet to access their favorite ice fishing location.
