    Ice Fishing permit required for ANYONE ice fishing.

    RESTRICTIONS: Ice-fishing is allowed on a FISH AT YOUR OWN RISK basis. Ice conditions are not monitored by the Park District. Ice fishermen should check ice thickness before going out on any frozen body of water. A minimum of four inches of solid ice over the entire lake is recommended before individuals attempt ice fishing.

    EQUIPMENT LIMITS / REQUIREMENTS: POLE AND LINE FISHING ONLYNo other fishing devices are permitted. The ice angler may use a maximum of two poles or tip-ups with no more than two hooks on each line. All poles and tip-ups shall be constantly attended and kept under observation by the angler. CHAINSAW OR ICE SAWHoles cut in the ice are limited to 12-inch diameter or less.  PORTABLE SHELTERSShelter structures are limited to portable construction of metal or wood framework, covered with canvas, paper, plastic material or similar fabric.

Ice may be safe in one spot, yet very thin only a few feet away. Currents, underwater springs, animal activity (beavers) or runoff from local roads and watersheds can all create hard-to-detect areas of thin ice. Remember, for your own safety, no ice should be considered totally safe. Using a little common sense can help you avoid a lot of problems
