Im down in PA and I have been anxiously waiting for ice out this year more than most due to the purchase of a new canoe and other gear over the winter. As soon as Ice out occurs Im heading north. Watching the weather roll through the north east over the last several weeks is killing me.

See the update from Ryan Ball on the Opener Reports thread in the Hunting and Fishing section. Looks like we have a couple weeks to wait yet.

Ponds in the Pharaoh region still had ice on them this past weekend. The good news is that it is getting really soft...I tried to walk out onto Berrymill Pond and broke through up to my knees.

Glad it was just knee deep! Ponds are like a booby trap now; I think they are going to go out very suddenly this year. We were rock climbing in the warm sun yesterday (T shirt weather), and it was funny to drive by Chapel Pond and see it still stubbornly iced over. I think most ponds will go out in the next couple days.

Still large piles of snow in my yard and deep snowbanks along the road from the winter (spring) town road plowing.

Overly Optimistic? I took a chance and removed the snowblower from my tractor this morning. Just trying to be hopeful at a current temp of 60F. Darn grass will start growing way too soon.

First bike ride yesterday put me in heavy slush on sheltered areas of woods roads.

Received a report yesterday, that over the weekend they were still ice fishing on Raquette Lake. Hinckley is still iced over.

Almost all the ice is out on Middle Saranac, and folks were paddling Fish Creek..Here's to hoping the next few days of rain knock the hell outta the ice!

Serious question because I'm trying to learn more and am not nearly as dialed in as others on this forum. I feel like I have read on this forum that warm winters and early ice out has impacted the trout fishing in the Adirondacks.

It seems like it would be common sense with warm vs cold but just wanted to see if its that simple.

Does a long winter and late ice out help extend the trout fishing season due to water temperature? Or does a warm spell negate the late ice out and warm the water up just as quickly as if we were to have mild temps throughout?

Good to hear Middle Saranac is nearly open already. Will be headed up to Fish Creek or St. Regis in 2 weeks.

Little Clear is still solid. Ditto for Little Green and Follensby Clear.
