If you’re planning to do some ice fishing over the holidays, keep front of mind ice conditions continues to vary across the state. DNR spokeswoman Lisa Dugan:

“Definitely, in the northern parts of the state it sounds like that they are opening up vehicles to larger vehicles but kind of in central and southern regions that just doesn’t seem to be the case right now. There just hasn’t been enough ice to support the large vehicles and in some cases even ATVs and snowmobiles.”

Recent rain, snow, and fluctuating temperatures-has affected ice-making and impacted ice that’s already formed.
