The current lake level is 35 percent full and the lake is filling slowly with input from natural springs. The most recent report from earlier in the week is that there’s about 6 inches of snow over about 4-6 inches of ice covering the lake. Ice depth can change rapidly at Fish Lake and starting around the weekend, the forecast is for a slight warming trend. Anglers should be extremely careful if they attempt any ice fishing and do so at their own risk.
