Ice fisherman Nelson Shotts of Ft. Loudon, formerly of northern Fulton County, uses his auger to drill through the 8.5 inches of ice covering Cowans Gap Lake. Quite a few fishermen have been taking advantage of the arctic like weather to fish for trout and blue gills below the ice. Although snow covers most of the ice, a portion has been cleared for ice skaters. 001p1.jpg
