GLASGOW - It's that time of year when ice anglers and other recreationists head out to Montana's "hard" waters for the winter season. Whether ice fishing, ice skating, hunting, snowmobiling or just taking a walk, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks staff reminds recreationists that safety should be the number one concern during a day out on - or near - the ice.
And when on the ice, remember:
Anglers and other recreationists should be familiar with the water body they plan to fish or recreate on. Pay close attention to the changing conditions of the ice.
If you have even the slightest doubt...
