Parts of Watkins Lake State Park and County Preserve in Michigan are off limits for much of the year because it’s a waterfowl refuge. But in winter time, if it’s cold enough, you can go ice fishing.
“I got a couple of fish I got in there,” Mike Davis said as he ducked out of his ice fishing tent. He and his friend were catching perch and some bluegill.
Davis is from Adrian, about a half-hour away from this lake in southeast Jackson county.
These two say they love to go ice fishing on lakes in southern Michigan, but they’re seeing some changes.
