Twelve Quick Tips
Always test the ice.(How can I tell if the ice is safe?
All frozen bodies of water are to be considered potentially dangerous! Ice does not form uniformly over the entire surface of a water body. Ice thickness at one location should not be considered to be indicative of ice thickness over a whole water body or geographic region. Persons who are not personally familiar with the ice conditions should systematically and safely check the ice thickness before undertaking any activity on the ice. If you fall in, reach for solid ice, kick and roll to safety. You might consider purchasing an “ice safety pick”, an inexpensive device (worn by all Fish and Game officers) that can be purchased at most bait and tackle shops.
Beware! Wind and current break up the ice.
Dress in layers, bring food & hot drinks.
Fish with a partner.
Do not gather in large groups.
No fires on the ice.
Bring blankets and a first-aid kit.
If you fall in, reach for solid ice, kick & roll to safety.
Follow all fishing regulations.
Do not drive cars onto the ice.
Clean up after yourself! Leave nothing behind.
