Hills Creek ice update. Lake is capped with an inch or so of soft ice. We could be fishing this weekend if the current forecast holds true and we do not get a lot of snow. If not this weekend, we will be on soon after. We will update again Friday. Beechwood and Hamilton are both nearly wide open and I do not expect them to be fishable this weekend. Wind is keeping the lakes open and it will take some more cold weather to ice them up completely. Smaller, private ponds, should also be fishable this weekend if they are capped over.
Remember to check conditions yourself before venturing out onto the ice. If you're unsure of it, stay home, stay dry, and come back another day. Hopefully, we're in for a nice long season this year.
