Have you ever gone ICE FISHING??Ice Fishing is a great and safe way to beat cabin fever and spend quality time with family and friends outdoors. If you are interested in learning more about ice fishing, watch the CT DEEP Let's Go Ice Fishing video, read theirIce Fishing 101 blog or take a FREE learn to ice fish class!
Experts will be available to answer all your ice fishing questions! There are a TON of places to go in CT too!Safety first: A rule of thumb for ice safety is “there is no 100% guarantee”. Ice thickness and strength will vary from place to place. Be sure to “test” the thickness as you go – do not assume. Generally, four to five inches or more of clear ice is acceptable for a small group ice fishing.
