Schroon lake
« on: Jan 15, 2012, 07:06 PM »
How's Schroon doing?  I've been invited up to Schroon to fish, and was wondering how it was doing.  Does it have any ice?  I'm about 2 1/2 hours south and would like to know if it is worth the trip

Thanks

Yes, smelt are allowed on Schroon, but I don't think anyone sells them now.

you can use them for bait but can not take them off the ice.

Actually, you can't bring them back to Schroon or to another lake to use as bait; but you can bring them home to eat. ;)

4 wheelers?  Only if you enjoy fishing them out of the drink.   Worst, most irregular ice conditions I have seen on this lake, and I've been fishing Schroon since the early eighties.

Should be good in Keplers bay,  just stay away from inlet.  Don't assume anything this year, always check.  Ice conditions vary greatly so far.  If we had a week of the kind of weather we had this weekend, 17below,  things would even out, but that's not what is forecasted.

The bay above Fowler Ave-Kepler's,   The flat south of Deceasers Pizza,,  behind the island,  good places to start

I was on the north end yesterday. Good ice there.  I don't think it is good below there though.

Last couple days a guy was fishing out in front of the boat launch behind Stewarts,  today a group was fishing the narrows.   South end is now frozen,  but probably not safe yet.   Might go drill some test holes tomorrow.

Thanks for the update. Excuse my ignorance but I`m new to this lake. By `narrows` which is often referred to here do you mean the narrow part in the center of the lake? Sorry, I`m a little confused `cause I heard guys talking about `narrows` somewhere at the south end.
