Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds ice fishermen to use common-sense precautions when venturing onto the ice, including always fishing with a partner and drilling test holes to determine ice thickness. Each angler should wear a life jacket and carry ice picks, 50 feet of rope and a cell phone. Park rangers also recommend that anglers stay away from cracks, pressure ridges and slushy or darker areas that signify thinner ice.
