The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is reminding those who like to fish frozen lakes to enjoy the sport responsibly.

Because of the early bouts of cold weather that New York has seen this year, anglers are likely to head out on the ice earlier than usual.

The DEC wants all anglers to check ice conditions thoroughly and avoid situations that may present even the slightest of risks.

They also caution that even if you see footprints or snowmobile tracks on the ice, the ice may still not be safe.
