Due to lack of solid ice this event has been cancelled.
The ice this winter has been sketchy at best throughout a majority of the state. These unsafe ice conditions have resulted in the postponement or cancellation of many ice fi
shing tournaments and derby’s across the state. Finally, this past week good safe ice has been forming and fishermen have been out in full force in central Iowa. I just wanted to share two ice fishing events that are being held in February in Story County. (Hopefully, please call to makes sure that the dates don’t get pushed back again)
