There's going to be 20-30 cm of snow on Saturday. Careful.

Not sure, I was thinking more for your drive. I changed a day hut trip of mine from Sat to Sun.

Not sure about "Saturday Jan 12/ Sunday Jan 13 ". As to Saturday Jan 13/ Sunday Jan 14, I don't think ice itself is of any issue. The concern if any would be with the upcoming rain and snow, I think....

Depending on how much rain we get the ice at the shore could melt from the run off and make it difficult to get on the ice. But I don't think it will melt to the point where it is unsafe. Probably be messy tho!

I'm heading out in the area on Sat / Sun! (If that adds a little extra confidence )

The ice will be fine - its been really thick in the areas so 2 days of +5 highs won't do much to the ice. The snow will be a pain in the a$$ to trek through if you're walking.

Just make sure to carbo load this week to have the energy to trek through the slush

No such thing as a stupid question if you have never had to trek through the snow before, are asking people who possibly have and want to be safe out on the water.

Just my .02

I was thinking the same thing as I was hoping to get out Saturday morning but it would be my first time trying to brave a lot of snow out on the ice by myself.

Not exactly a dumb question as its my first season ice fishing. If you have been doing it for years im sure you would have a better idea than I would. If you dont have anything nice to say, why comment really? I am looking out for my safety which is actually smart rather than dumb.

I'm booked on Cook's bay with an operator on Sat, but it looks like the storm might be pushing more into Friday.....the ice will be a bit of a mess on the weekend though.

Good Luck!

Yeah, I would say it's a pretty valid question. I was just laughing at how the responses ranged from "there's going to be a snowstorm" to "stay in school".
