Although ice conditions are not always safe for ice fishing, ice fishing is allowed. Use caution as some areas of the lake are usually ice-free all season. Contact Idaho Department of Fish and Game for current hunting regulations and see Rules and Regulations for refuge-specific regulations.

Caution: a Fish Consumption Advisory has been issued by the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare for Lake Lowell and the Snake River because of high mercury levels. See link for safe consumption levels.
