Before you head out to the local pond for some skating or ice fishing, check out our ice thickness chart to determine if it’s safe!
Deep down within the frozen brook I hear a murmur faint and sweet,
And lo! The ice breaks as I look, and living waters touch my feet.

WARNING: Always be cautious. If you are unsure if the ice is safe, don’t take your chances!
It may also be a good idea to check with a local expert about ice safety. Bait shops or lakeside businesses may know about the ice conditions. Always be safe and don’t put yourself or others at risk.
