FAIRBANKS, Alaska — In another sure sign of winter in Fairbanks, the borough has opened up its four public-use ice fishing huts on Chena Lake.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the Fairbanks North Star Borough operates the four icehouses on the lake.
They can be rented for $25 a day, and include a wood stove and firewood.
The borough will even drill a hole so you can drop a fishing line into the lake.
And that might be worth it. The National Weather Service says the ice was 17 inches thick Monday.
