Ice Fishing Closed at Cosmo-Bethel Park
COLUMBIA - Columbia Parks and Recreation has closed Cosmo-Bethel Park for ice fishing, as the warming temperatures have caused the ice to thin to unpredictable conditions.
Stephens Lake Park will remain open for ice skating at this time, as the ice measured eight inches in thickness Tuesday. However, users are urged to exercise caution as the weather gets warmer. Crews will check the ice thickness regularly, and notifications will be posted when Stephens Lake is deemed too dangerous for skating.
