Adirondacks Fishing Report – January 25th, 2013

After a setback earlier this month when temperatures climbed well into the 40s, the hard-water crowd is back on most waters. Still, use caution when heading out. At the height of the warmup even Lake Colby in Saranac Lake offered iffy ice conditions; a couple on an ATV broke through the ice. Things should be better now on waters like Schroon Lake (at least the north end), Lake Champlain’s Bulwagga Bay and several others up north, Lake Eaton, Tupper Lake and others. Still, use caution when heading out.

Also, note changes in the region’s fishing regulations that affect ice anglers. In Franklin County, Lake Kushaqua and Rollins Pond, you can now ice fish for lake trout.

In Hamilton County, Blue Mountain Lake, Eagle Lake, Forked Lake, Gilman Lake, South Pond and Utowana Lake you can ice fish for landlocked salmon, and the daily limit for lakers has been trimmed from three to two daily.
