Will Fremont Lake freeze over?
Last time it didnít freeze over was in 1981

It looks like this might be another rare year when the surface of Fremont Lake might not freeze over. We usually get several weeks of sub-zero weather during December and January that are cold enough to freeze over our area lakes, but so far that hasnít happened this winter, much to the disappointment of ice fishermen. The last time Fremont Lake didnít freeze over was in 1981. We know this because each year the Pinedale Boat Club has a barrel drop guess contest, putting a barrel out in the middle of the lake and then recording the exact time when the ice melts and it falls through. The one who guesses the closest day and time wins the $500 prize that year (must be a Boat Club member to participate). Those times can be found here:
