I tried ice fishing Savage a few years ago.  I will never make that mistake again.  I walked about 10 offshore to drill a while to check thickness.  Broke through the ice with my auger and no water came up.  I looked down the hole and found about a 2foot gap between the ice and water.  Because they can release huge amounts of water from the dam at any given moment, the water drops fast and it takes a while for the ice to drop.  The good news is that there was 7inches of ice but can you imagine if you fell through and wasn’t able to grab the ice to pull yourself out.  It’s “Good Night Irene”.
