CONCORD, NH — Early season frigid weather, reinforced by a recent cold snap, has led to favorable ice conditions across most of the Granite State. Even so, never trust secondhand ice thickness information; ALWAYS check ice thickness yourself by punching some test holes as you move from shore to deeper water, especially early in the season. Be especially cautious near inlets and outlets where water currents can thin the ice. See a short video demonstrating how to check ice thickness at www.wildnh.com/outdoor-recreation/ice-safety.html.
