Lake Elmo Ice Fishing Contest Canceled
LAKE ELMO, Minn. (WCCO) – The warm weather conditions have left the ice about six inches too short to allow a Minnesota ice fishing contest to go on as scheduled.
Organizers with the Lake Elmo Lions Club announced the cancellation of next Sunday’s ice fishing contest, which was to be held on Lake Jane.
Organizers measured the ice on the lake at about 12 inches, and said it needed to be 18 inches for everyone’s safety, especially because most participants would be parking their vehicles along the lake’s edge.
According to the Lions Club, this is the second time in recent years the event had to be canceled because of warm weather.
