anyone fishing on wallenpaupack?
« on: Feb 05, 2024, 01:18 PM »
I will be staying on Wallenpaupack Thursday - Sunday.

Is anyone fishing Wallenpaupack recently or see anyone out on the lake?  I can see there is ice from webcams here https://www.poconomountains.com/plan-your-vacation/live-cameras/  , but not sure how much.

thanks!
Dan

FF123, I was there yesterday and the ice is crap. No one fishing and areas of open water. Especially Ledgedale and the Rte 507 side.  :(    FT

Most of the lake was covered recently but it wasn’t close to being fishable. Only skim to 1-2” at most. This is a BIG lake that gets BIG wind and therefore needs a prolonged COLD snap to be fishable. I haven’t been on it in 3-4 years. We can have 10” of ice on nearby (smaller) lakes and there can be open water on The Pack!  :o
Where's the FISH?!

RuttNutt,

your report was spot on.  We found the shorelines to be weak and maybe 2" of bad ice tops beyond that.
