Thanks....I live in Binghamton about 15 minutes from the PA border and old man winter doesn't want to let go down here. Concerned to see Old Forge Area picking up 5" of snow last night. Keeping my fingers crossed everything is iced out by the time we get up there....Again, thanks for your update!

Visited a pond this morning at 1,500 feet in the Lake George area. Still iced over.

The deer in that area must be hurting.

Took a look at a few places today.........Lake Clear,Little Clear, Little Green, Fish Cr Pond, Lower Saranac and a few other smaller ponds. All had ice solid to the shoreline. Saw a couple die-hards fishing on Lake Colby. A foot of base in the woods with a couple of inches of soft snow on top. Fishing????? I'm going to do some skiing! Maybe 2nd week of May for pond fishing.

My camp is in the core of Tug Hill.
So I think they are OK, their wintering yards are many miles from my camp. Also, the snow is solid enough to walk on top, and the fields and open country have much less snow. I did encounter some turkey tracks while on my camp property.

Good Morning everyone, I am really hoping ponds start melting real fast. I am heading up to SRCA on Tuesday the 25th to do some brook trout fishing. We are hoping to cross clear and set up base camp on either grass or green. not looking very promising for those ponds to be open water. Thanks again for all the updates. please feel free to keep them coming.

Head down about 3/4 of the way down for the web cam.

I'm usually on the water paddling out to the islands the first week or so of April.

It might be a good idea to wait a week....
at the least.

Yesterday, just off Rte 28 on the way to Old Forge, smallish Snowbird Lake on the edge of the Blue Line is still locked up with white ice, except for some open water where feeder streams enter.

I think it will be tough finding open water on ponds anywhere. Streams are open but the water temp on the WB Ausable the other morning was 38 degrees.

The ice situation this year is a real bummer. I booked vacation for May 1-4, thinking it would be a safe bet. Now wishing I'd moved it out a week.

Let's hope this week's relative warmth hits it hard!

-Thanks for sharing that link to the satellite view
