Wild Horse Reservoir commonly boasts the state's lowest winter temperatures, which are ideal for ice fishing. It freezes early and stays frozen longest, with the best access during winter months, but conditions constantly change. Remember, ice fishing can be very dangerous and requires the utmost caution. Always use common sense and don’t take unnecessary chances.
