Ice conditions vary and can change quickly from one area to another; use caution and check thickness often if venturing out. Most ice in the district is between 5 -10 inches with the occasional pocket of open water, seam, or thin ice in the main basins.
Black Crappie - Fair: Anglers have picked up crappie along the SW shoreline of the lake. The bite is hit or miss but seems to be best during mornings and evenings.
Ice remains variable but anglers have been out foot traffic only at this time. Anglers have had luck with panfish and the occasional walleye while fishing the very southwest corner of the lake and near the narrows out in front the the state park beach. Conditions are variable, use caution and check ice thickness often if you venture out.
