Ashford, CT 1/07/13 Thomas O'Connell of Holland, MA., took a little investigative hike around Mashapaug Pond at Bigelow State Park in Union Monday to check the thickness of the ice for some future ice fishing. O'Connell said he found a good portion of the pond to have 6 or more inches of ice but only about three inches near the middle of the lake which still had a little open water. Above average temperatures are expected over the next week reaching into the 50's by the weekend with some rain which will put a damper on any fishing.
