Hard Water Classic Update:

Unfortunately, Tournament Directors have decided to CANCEL this year’s Hard Water Classic due to varying ice conditions and safety concerns on Silver Lake.

After the rains the last couple of days and warm temps, Ranger staff found that several areas of Silver Lake have poor ice to open water along the shoreline. The Forest Preserve advocates at least 4 inches of good ice for safe ice fishing activity.

With potentially hundreds of ice fishermen coming out, we feel the safety risk to our patrons far outweighs the reward of having a tournament, even with the cold temperatures coming tomorrow.

Remember, Ice Fishing on FPDDC Waters is at your own risk and Rangers do not regularly monitor ice thickness. We encourage all of our visitors to use good judgement when venturing onto the ice!

Also, if you did sign up for the tournament, you will receive a full refund.

Thank you,

Johanna Biedron

If its brown it's down! If it flys shoot it! And if it smells like fish EAT it!!
