  • Lake Cascade Ice report for January 18, 2018

    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.
