DNR Advises Caution on Area Lakes Due to Variable Ice Conditions

Date posted - December 20, 2012

DNR logoStorm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)

Ice is not thick enough to venture out on.  There are some pockets of open water in the middle.

Big Spirit Lake

The lake is all ice except a few holes the geese are keeping open. Ice conditions are variable and fishing is limited to a few sheltered areas. Use caution when fishing early ice, checking the ice frequently is highly recommended.

East Okoboji Lake

East Okoboji is frozen but ice conditions are too unstable for fishing.

West Okoboji Lake

Earlier this week skim ice was forming on the bays but the wind from the storm that hit Wednesday night/Thursday morning has opened all but the backs of the bays.
