Northern NY Ice???
« on: Jan 09, 2012, 05:50 PM »
Any reports for ice? I have heard there is fishing going on at Eagle mid - last week around causeway. I have heard Brant is also being fished.....anyone confirm this??
Sacandaga and Caroga were being fished last week with some Splake and Rainbows coming out of Caroga.
Wondering if Moreau, Trout or Thompsons are frozen.

West caroga has thin ice with some open water still! I would not reccomend it.

Also if you post 4 more times you'll be able to access the Reports and conditions board and see what the conditions are on all the NY lakes.

The Great Sacandaga is not 'Northern' NY.  It is on the Southern edge of the Adirondack's, North of Amsterdam, NY.  I would call it a capital region lake, being that it is about the same distance from Albany as Lake George is.

Apparently so. Sacandaga is only home to the North American and former World Record Northern Pike; hardly known outside of the "Capital Region" though.  ;D

It's definitely not in Southern NY. The area around Great Sacandaga is in the Northern Zone when it comes to hunting. ;)

Wikipedia says ;D:

Quote
The Great Sacandaga Lake (formerly the Sacandaga Reservoir) is a large lake situated in the Adirondack Park in northern New York in the United States. The word Sacandaga means "Land of the Waving Grass" in the local native language. The lake is located in the northern parts of Fulton County and Saratoga County near the south border of the Adirondack Park. A small part of it also extends northward into southern Hamilton County. The broader, south end of the lake is northeast of the City of Johnstown and the City of Gloversville.

Like many of the other lakes in the Adirondack region of northern New York, Great Sacandaga Lake is a reservoir. The original lake was greatly enlarged by a dam on the Sacandaga River at the northeast end of the lake. The primary purpose for the creation of the reservoir was to control flooding on the Hudson River and the Sacandaga River.

That's how I find out.  And you're definitely a New Yorker.  Want me to hold him while you slap him around a bit?

It's north of the city so that means it's northern NY I guess...

Those places are all southern adks, Depending on where guys live they consider anything north of thethruway to be northern NY but Ice Dog and NorthernnyIce and guys like myself having grown up in the true northern Ny know that those areas are 4-5hrs wouth of northern NY.  i think unless you are north of Old Forge area you should consider it "Northern but in reality you need to be north of Tupper where the men are men so aren't the women and the sheep run scared to consider it north country ;D
