Ice Fishing Report:

Update - January 21, 2021 - Lake Mitchell & Cadillac

Many places have heavy snow and slush on top, up to 8" and more forecasted for tonight. Where heavy slush and snow are present ice thickness seems to be around 5-7". Places where the ice has been well traveled and the snow/slush has frozen may have 8+" of ice. People are still running machines out on the ice but it can be a struggle if you get bogged down in the slush. Stay tuned to the Pilgrims Village Fishing Shop for frequent fishing updates!
