Heard we still got ice in Chenango County. Mabe I'll give up the annual April 1st trout fishing and hit the ice once again. After all, I took the day off from work to fish. I might as well try something different huh?

So who knows the exact rules on fishing for trout on ice on trout waters when trout season opens? I think you can fish it threw the ice but only with 2 hand lines correct???? and no live bait on some waters

By rule in NY you can not ice fish in waters with trout in them.  Only by exception can you ice fish them.  For example, Lake Colby has trout in it, but you can ice fish it because it is listed as "Ice fishing allowed" in the Region 5 regulations.  Find the Region the trout water you want to fish is in, find the county and if its not listed specifically as allowing Ice fishing, then you cannot ice fish that water.

if you cut, punch or any other means make a hole through the ice to put in a line, it's considered ice fishing.and unless the body of water allows ice fishing you can't fish it. it doesn't matter that trout opens april 1st, unless you can fish without making a hole. people take long sticks and push there baited hooks up under the ice where it's breaking up along the shorelines. if you can do that it's legal

I just want to ice fish again. I don't care for trout anyways. The only reason that I fish for trout is for something to do between ice fishing and walleye season. We do have a couple of local lakes that have trout and you can ice fish them though.

Anyone know the conditions up on Champlain, specifically Kelly Bay or Dillenback?  I plan on making the trip up there next weekend from southern NH and just want to make sure the ice will still be good.  I'm assuming the ice itself will be fine and it will be the shorelines that are the problem if there are problems which I'm hoping there's not.  We are still fishing on 14 inches of ice down here.  With this foot of snow that we are suppose to get today we should be fishing for at least two more weeks.  My record of fishing through the ice on April 23rd could be in jeopardy...which isn't a bad thing! :-)

Any info on the ice conditions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

-Jon
