Lake Viva Naughton Ice Conditions

The Kemmerer Lions Club was up at Lake Viva Naughton today (2/10/18) tagging fish. The lake is looking great! There is about 2 feet of ice with 4-5" of hard-pack snow and virtually no slush. There were a couple of people out with four wheelers and a side-by-side or two. While tracked vehicles are always preferable, in case of drastic changes in conditions, wheeled ATVs will work fine as it is now. The weather report doesn't indicate any major changes in temperature or precipitation in the coming week.


Special thanks to Black Canyon Trout Farm from Grace, ID for donating the fish again this year. Also, thank you to Robb Keith with the Wyoming Game and Fish Fisheries for assisting with and witnessing the tagging.
