Adirondacks Fishing Report – February 5th, 2016
Schroon Lake: Anglers were icing a decent number of lakers and the occasional salmon. The best ice conditions at last check were at the north end (which is always the first to lock up) and off the town beach.
Lake Champlain: Anglers have been out on the ice, with decent perch action in the north end and panfish and pickerel reported further south, near Ticonderoga. That said, it’s been a frustrating year, with ice conditions seemingly always on the brink of becoming unsafe. At least one vehicle plunged through the ice, and late last month a pair of anglers became trapped when conditions deteriorated and they lost their route back to shore. They were rescued unharmed.
A number of other waters in the North Country offered safe ice, but keep an eye on changing conditions and always use caution. It seems this winter most of the talk has been about the availability of safe ice rather than who is catching what.
