Trapper Gary Smith stated that he started earlier due to the cold spell we've been having. Because Cordry and Sweetwater are such deep lakes, they are the last to freeze over. Neighboring lakes like Lamb are already skimmed over completely with ice. Gary has taken 218 muskrats and a pair of beaver from Sweetwater Lake this fall. He is finished with Sweetwater and has just a little more to complete on Cordry.
