Warm Clothes - waterproof snow boots and warm clothes are a must. We suggest dressing in layers. The ice conditions can be slushy and wet depending on how much snow is on top. Bring extra socks and boots. Handwarmers are highly suggested. Nobody wants to have cold feet and hands! Ice cleats that attach to boots are handy if the ice is slick.
Bring Some Chairs - the ice is wet and in order to stay dry we suggest you bring a chair or a bucket to sit on for each member of your group. A sled to haul all of your gear to the ice from the parking area is a good idea.
Food - There will be limited hotdogs, bottled water, and hot chocolate for the kids. This will be until supplies run out which happens every year. We suggest bringing some extra food and snacks to keep your group happy throughout the day.
Fishing License - This is an educational event that is free of charge. A fishing license is not required during the hours of the event. This applies to all attendees including adults.
Fishing Gear - Idaho Fish and Game will have a limited supply of loaner rods. If you have your own gear we request that you bring it so the loaners can be given to those who need them. There will be bait and tackle on hand as well. We will also have various ice fishing prizes for the kids to win throughout the day.
Travel & Parking - Travel to Horsethief Reservoir will include snow packed roads. Good snow tires or chains are advisable. Please make sure your vehicle is ready for winter conditions. Parking space is limited at the Reservoir. We request that you carpool as much as possible to save on space so we can accommodate everyone. This event can get very crowded, so please be patient and polite with others concerning parking.
