CARY – A foot of ice may cover Lake Atwood, but newbies and pros can try their hand at ice fishing Saturday.

The McHenry County Conservation District is hosting a family-friendly introduction to ice fishing from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Lake Atwood in The Hollows Conservation Area, 3804 Route 14, Cary.

Some equipment will be available to borrow, and bait will be provided. The fishing holes will be predrilled.

No registration is required, but participants ages 16 and up will need a fishing license with an inland water trout stamp to fish.

For information, call the conservation district at 815-459-5779 or visit for additional ice fishing locations and conditions.
