I looked it up again after posting that and confirmed there is a ban on it due to it being a "watershed" lake. Its stupid IMO, if a lake allows jetski's it should allow snowmobiles / atvs on the ice. They definitely dont put as much oil in the water as a old 2 stroke fishing motor.I've never heard of a ban on atvs on the ice, I'll have to do some research on that.
-DallanCIce Conditions- Good ice on most of the reservoir. Reservoir is rising about 1 foot a week, meaning that the edges will be soft. Please remember that the ice conditions vary and are constantly changing, verify ice conditions before going onto it. Main ice sheet approximations: Charleston Bay 5-7 inches, Rainbow Bay 5 inches, Island 5 inches, Main varies greatly 0-4 inches. Please remember that dogs, snowmobiles and ATV's are not permitted at Deer Creek Reservoir due to its watershed water status.
