While most lakes have 6-8 inches of ice on them, the ice is extremely unpredictable. Due to rainfall a few weeks ago ice fishermen are reporting pressure cracks and slush around the shore.

As of last week open water was spotted on the Gile Flowage near big island.

All snowmobiles are advised to stay off the ice .

Trail 15 from the Cary Mine Market south to West Branch, approx. 7 miles
