In western ny March has so far had only 2 days above average temps and twenty days below the daily average. This has been a unique winter in that it started out very cold then had a couple of warm ups and now has returned to colder and snowier than average. The ice in the Adirondacks does not appear to have suffered the same fate as the ice in lower and western ny. Could be a later than average ice out on the ponds especially with all of the snow protecting it.

I live on the Great Sacandaga Lake and there are still plenty of folks riding up and down the lake on snowmobiles and we have lots of snow cover. I think that ice is going to be around a bit longer.

Went out ice fishing last few days each spot 22 plus inches of ice and no slop no soft shoreline. Looks like this week may start something but will be a month about before its all said and gone.

Is it too early...

to bathe the Mermaid?
to adore the Suka?
to float with the Sphinx?
The fishing was really good for 10,000 years...

Now April 25th. Still plenty of ice on ponds and big lakes and snow pack in the woods is holding on. Might go into May before ponds are free of the icy grip. Record cold spells have resulted in long snow and ice season. Ah the natural cycles of mother nature have returned to the Adirondacks again! Gotta love it. Maybe fishing by Cinco de Mayo?
