17 December 2014
Well it’s the 17th and there is a light dusting of snow mixed with drizzle out the office window. I have been getting a lot of inquires about ice conditions, and I’ll recap what’s going on here for all the readers.
There is light sheet ice developing on most of the lakes, but nothing close to “fish-able” ice as of yet. I imagine due to the colder winter type weather we have had here since this weekend, that the ice is coming but just not yet.
I imagine many of you are busy sharpening auger blades and bulk purchasing hand warmers. So this news may be received with a negative cabin fever fueled curse word or two. It’s okay, soon hopefully you’ll be able to slip and slide out onto the Jicarilla Lakes.
Just a reminder the 9th Annual Ice Derby is scheduled for January 17th (of course dependant on ice conditions). Fishing should be excellent and I think I scheduled around all the serious football shenanigans that usually occur in January. Come out and enjoy with friends and family. Our pile of prizes continues to grow, and 100% of funds generated from the derby go to stocking the Jicarilla.
