Attention Cascade ice anglers: This winter, IDFG will be conducting fisheries surveys on Lake Cascade with partners at the University of Idaho. These surveys are part of an ongoing graduate study evaluating seasonal changes in diet and growth of perch, bass, and pikeminnow in Lake Cascade.
To conduct these surveys, holes larger than 10 inches in diameter will be cut with saws to deploy sampling gears in several locations across the lake. These areas will be clearly marked with ice shanties, bright orange paint, and descriptive signs until the survey is complete and the holes refreeze.
A sign and buoy notifying anglers of a hole in the ice and associated scientific sampling taking place on Lake Cascade in January 2023.
