CO Brandon McGaw (Mora) checked some anglers who were still hitting the ice. Most fishing was good for some but most have elected to stay off the deteriorating ice. A litter complaint was fielded where someone dumped insulation into the Snake River in northern part of the county. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the TIP line. Burning complaints were also taken with enforcement action taken including no permit, burning of garbage, and failure to follow permit restrictions.

CO Todd Langevin (Center City) reports checking the last few brave ice anglers of the season. The anglers put up a good effort to try to find fish but did not succeed. CO Langevin also patrolled complaint areas for ATV activity. CO Langevin also spent time patrolling the area for burning violations.
