Ice-fishing season ending with dangerous conditions

UNDATED (WSAU)   People are still falling through the ice on Wisconsin lakes, as they make their final attempts at ice fishing. On Easter Sunday, Dane County rescuers were called to three spots where anglers fell in – one on Mud Lake, and two on Lake Mendota in Madison. Sheriff’s lieutenant Gerald Hundt said all three people were rescued unharmed. He says anglers should be aware of their surroundings, and especially stay away from springs and currents where ice hardly ever forms.

With the colder-than-normal weather, Waukesha County Sheriff’s lieutenant Paul Renkas says the early spring thaw appears to be going slower than usual – but the ice is thawing faster than it appears. That’s because of the recent high temperatures in the 40’s. It’s supposed to be cooler the next couple days, with highs in the 30’s statewide.
