In years past the Evergreen police keep a close eye on the lake and won't let anyone on until there's about 10 to 12 inches of ice. Usually miss out on the good early ice bite but there are some fun days catching small ones.
They kicked me off the ice one year and said it was too thin. I replied that I was standing on 6-7 inches which would hold up a small car but they didn't want to hear that and said they want a foot or more to be safe. Last year a guy died when he went through the ice but he was on an area where there was current and thin ice.
