Ice fishing season could be upon us soon. DNR Conservation officer Eric Hoffman tells KNIA/KRLS News that although the ice has yet to form, the state is prepared for ice fishing season. According to Hoffman all the same summer fishing regulations apply to winter fishing permits. He also says that making sure that lake ice is at least 4 inches thick before venturing out onto it to help you stay safe and that If you are going on to the ice, make sure someone knows where you are, so if something does happen authorities will be able to find you in case of an emergency.
