When the Lake freezes up, bring out the auger! Place your chair, bait up, set your rod in its holder and enjoy a popular back country pastime! Enjoy every second of the beautiful vistas, the camaraderie of your fellow fishers and the pulse pounding excitement of pulling a fat trout up through the almost frozen fishing hole. Alternatively, you can stand your rod securely in the ice and watch for fish from the warmth of the cabin! Either way, you will get to be part of a winter ritual enjoyed by thousands each year.
