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?

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?

Some shoreline opening but a lot of ice. Looks like its getting really soft. Walked the tracks on colby and only where water goes under and the left side...little colby side....was half open. Right main side of colby only 20 foot of open water where water goes under.

Just took a ride up to West Caroga Lake. Ice looks like it is about half gone. Looks like a warm day and some wind will take it out.

Bag is packed and I'll be heading to a lower elevation pond this weekend, cant wait! My hope is that the weather forecast of this week will open it up at least a little. I'll either have my first fishing trip of the year, or a nice stroll in the woods with a grossly overpacked pack, either or I'm excited.

Gentlemen, and Gentle Ladies...

Certain rivers and creeks are running beautifully.
Certainly.

Early Mayflies and Stoneflies hatching.
Aggressive Trout willing to chase ripping Streamers and Eulogies.

Spinner falls, even
with Sippers.

Don't step on the Morels, soon.

What's that under my armpit?

Pikebuster, I'm counting on you opening up the entire Adirondack watershed. I'm that sure of you ability to both drink and dispose of Bud Lite.

Mr. Morin, I have a strong suspicion you're hitting one of my favorites. Don't fish it out.

Me, I'm off to Atlanta to see my son Thomas graduate this weekend so I won't be among those of you who welcome the brookies to yet another season. Do well, be well!

At this point I just assume any new pond I find has been well traveled by you either way itíll be well taken care of haha

Congrats on thomasís Graduation. Very cool moment and a great accomplishment
