When the temperature drops and a thick layer of ice covers the surface of the lake,
die hard anglers know it’s time for ice fishing. the ice is typically thicker during the
coldest months of January and February. Because safety is key, it is important to
check with local outfitters to ensure that the ice is thick enough to support your
weight. For safety tips, information on the best fishing spots and top-of-the-line
equipment visit Bill’s outdoor center. Bill’s also sponsors ice fishing tournaments
throughout the season, as conditions permit.
Licenses are required and may be purchased at area outfitters or online at

B   lanketed in white, the mountains of Western Maryland become a snow covered
    playground during the winter months. An exhilarating guided snowmobile ad-
venture will take your breath away with non-stop action.

F   rom Europe to North America to Asia, people have been using snowshoes
    for over 3,000 years. What began as a basic need to find food in the win-
tertime, has become a popular form of recreation for all ages. With virtually
no skill required, it’s as easy as walking. Equipment can be rented from many
area state parks (see pg 58), and there is an endless amount of public land to
explore. Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the natural beauty of the area, as
you exercise your body and clear your mind.
