Hello, I am pretty new to Texas only been here a little over a year. I live in North Texas Aubrey area. Does anyone know the closest lake to me that freezes solid? I know it will be a bit of a drive. I heard there are ice storms in Texas but judging by the weather we had last 'Winter' surely no lakes are freezing.

Ponds freezing? Maybe and inch or two for a day or two. I wouldn't walk on them though. I've known two kids that thought they could. RIP.

Lakes freezing? No. Just no.

Just gotta make a short drive north to Canada.

Only time I see ice on the lake is when I spill my drink.

Why would you want to go ice fishing? Lived in Illinois and Wisconsin for 32 years and did a lot of it because that's all you could do. I've never had the urge to go back up north in the winter to ice fish. I also did a lot of downhill and cross country sking when I was there and have had no urge to go back to do that either.

Ice fishing seems like too much work to me. I'd be worn out by the time I cut enough trenches to cast.

I am also an avid skier, I love winter sports. I love being on the ice, setting up almost as if I am camping with all the bells and whistles, being able to cook on a propane stove and chill waiting on flags. To me this is enjoyable.

a lake up that way might get some ice from time to time . . . but I think it would be a rare winter that it would get thick enough for a grown man to walk on it. safely. I may be wrong, i grew up in northern OK and i recall a winter or two in the late 70s/early 80s where the lakes froze and even then you wouldn't venture out too terribly far.

In Tejas, God blessed us with liquid water we can fish 12 months out of the year. Why not just go fishing in the winter instead of 'ice fishing' ??

Yeah, I used to hit my thumb with a hammer when I was a kid. I never get the urge to think "hmmm, I think I'll go out to the garage, get my hammer and hit my thumb"
