As expected, the ice at Hills Creek State Park took a beating with Friday's warm rain. It is unfishable, but still mostly frozen. This looks to be thin, unstable ice. The spud bar broke through with only 1 hit. The backs of the coves had some open water too. We will check in again after Christmas, but it will take some consistent cold to get back to fishable conditions.
Let's hope Santa fills his sleigh with some cold weather for the end of the year. Check back for updates later this week. We hope you all have a great holiday.
