There’s no need to stay indoors once the cold hits. The Division of Wildlife Resources urges all to get out and enjoy the great outdoors not in spite of the cold but because of it! It’s the time of year for ice fishing which enthusiasts say you have to try in order to understand. Cold Water Sport Coordinator Randy Oplinger says ice fishing provides advantages you won’t find during other times of the year and the fishing can be great. “Ice fishing is great for beginning anglers,” shares Oplinger. “All of the gear you need shouldn’t cost more than $100 and it could easily cost less...The chance to relax and have fun on the ice, with your family and friends, is one of the many aspects of ice fishing that anglers really enjoy.” For more information on ice fishing and how to stay safe on the ice, visit www.wildlife.utah.gov.
