Ponds ice unsafe for ice fishing

pondNormally the dock at ParkCenter Pond in Boise is lined with anglers because the pond is stocked heavily with trout by Idaho Fish and Game.

But today (Dec. 12) there’s no one around. Ice is covering most of the pond making it impossible to fish. The ice is too thin to walk out on.

Before venturing on ice on any ponds or reservoirs in Southern Idaho, make sure the ice it strong enough to support your weigh.
