Long-awaited cold and snow finally arrive here

By Bill Bartusek

Winter has arrived! Cold weather and snow have finally come to the area. Anglers have been dealing with poor ice for over a month in our area. Now the cold weather has made ice conditions much better. Temperatures below zero have been creating more ice every day. In many cases, sometimes more than one inch per day.

Snow has also come to the area. This should excite snowmobilers and the like. I would say the cold has also improved the fishing. During the balmy weather, the fish also become lethargic.
