With the exception of some thin ice on the edges, Lake Cascade ice and fishing conditions remain excellent over the entire lake with 7 or more inches of hard ice. There is an inch or so of fresh snow on the ice over the entire lake making all areas accessible to anglers on foot, atv's, and snowmobiles. Bring some ice traction devices for your boots as some areas are very slick under the snow.
The Sugarloaf area road is currently open to vehicle traffic to the boat ramp.
No matter where you access the lake, always be cautious and check ice thickness occasionally, especially near creek mouths and pressure ridges. These ridge cracks can open and close daily depending on weather conditions.
Check back weekly for Cascade fishing conditions, and don't forget to buy your 2018 fishing license.
