Fishing Report: Good Ice, Minimal Snow…Time to Fish!
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk area has seen its share of cold weather the past couple weeks, and as a result, the ice is in very good condition on local area lakes and waterways. You can expect to find about 18 inches of ice in most areas.
Of course, use caution on flowages as ice can always fluctuate based on the currents of the rivers. The snow depths have been very low at the same time, so getting around on the ice is about as easy as you could hope for this far into the winter season. ATV, UTV and all trucks or SUVs are having no issues going anywhere that they want to right now.
The forecast for the week ahead is nothing more than ideal for getting out and trying your hand on area waters. Mild early February temps are expected with little precipitation at the same time.
Many area nonprofits regularly hold fishing derbies this time of year also, like the Alice in Winterland fishing contest that was held on Lake Alice on Saturday, Feb. 4. Hundreds and hundreds of people got out with the whole family for a day on the water, good laughs and fun times wetting a line in hopes of a fish that you could race up to the registration station for a chance to claim one of the top prizes. As always, this kid-friendly, family friendly event was a success, and the great ice and weather conditions brought the fishermen and women out in droves again this year.
If you haven’t gotten out much yet this year, or if you are an old pro on the ice, this coming week and maybe even longer, look to be a great period of time get out and drill some holes while you can get around to explore.
Time to fish!
