So sorry, we will not be holding Family Ice Fishing Day in 2022. This winter's extremely deep snow has made access to the lake and staging the program complicated. Hoping everyone has a chance to get out and fish this spring! We look forward to next spring, and returning to one of our favorite outdoor days of the year!
Everyone is welcome to join us for WISE/BLM Family Ice Fishing Day! We will be at Silver Lake on the McCarthy Road with pre-drilled holes in the ice, gear and bait to borrow, hot coffee and lunch! And of course, expert advice and tips to help everyone experience the joy of "hard-water fishing." There will be prizes for youth. Please have a fishing license if you are 18 and older
On the first Saturday of every April, the WISE/BLM Family Ice Fishing Day brings families and volunteers together for a day of fun, learning, and outdoor recreation at Silver Lake. Volunteers from the Bureau of Land Management and other partners drill holes, provide loaner equipment, and give fishing tips.
