Rare Event Flash Freezes Fish In Alcova

An intense blast of artic air coming in the form of seventy five mile an hour wind, dropped the temperature in one of the bays down to -74.3° in a matter of seconds, causing the already near freezing open water in an unnamed bay at Alcova Lake, to freeze almost instantly, trapping thousands of newly released fingering trout in the ice and one walleye that was jumping out of the water to more than likely escape the extreme temperature drop. The flash freezing event is very rare and has only happened one other time in recorded history.
