With ice forming on lakes and reservoirs throughout the state, the Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites, and Trails is reminding anglers of potential dangers on the ice.

Though ice fishing and other ice-related activities are a great way to enjoy Wyoming’s state parks and sites in the winter, ice is always in a state of flux, so anglers and other recreationists are reminded that driving any kind of motorized vehicle or walking on ice is risky.

Pressure ridges can cause thin patches in the ice that cannot support a car, pickup, ATV, or possibly human body weight, especially on ice that is only a few days old.

Fishermen are reminded that they are responsible for the cost of removing their vehicle from a lake or reservoir in Wyoming’s State Parks.

For up-to-date ice conditions, please call the respective State Park.
