Ice Fishing Stickers

Residents who are at the lake in the winter months observe a large number of ice fishing shacks on the lake and several parking locations being utilized for ice fishing. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing if these people are residents of the lake or not. Similar to boating and ATV stickers, which identify resident vehicles, many feel the presence of an ice fishing sticker may make a difference. While it won’t stop everyone, it may deter some of the more conscientious non-residents and at least make them more visible.

The Lake Ponderosa Association is recommending that all lot owners who wish to ice fish purchase an ice fishing sticker. The fishing sticker can be put on any person’s fishing bucket, where it would be very visible from a distance.  When ice fishing on the lake or from shore, this sticker can be easily seen and identifies you as a lot owner.

The ice fishing sticker can be purchased for $5.00, one per household, a one-time sticker. If you purchased a sticker last year, there is no need to purchase another one.   Make checks payable to Lake Ponderosa Association and mail to PO Box 751, Montezuma, IA  50171. Include your name, lake address and a phone number.
