Connecticut State Parks

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.  Photo by JOHN WOIKE | woike@courant.com
