We had a meeting with Cornell last night. Tons of great info.

Average ice out is April 1st.

The average number of days with ice has been shrinking roughly 6 days per decade for the past 2 decades. The ice out stays about the same but ice up has been getting later. The historical date of ice up used to be around January 1st.

They estimated 15,000 walleyes and 192,000 perch were harvested this winter. Higher than normal, but we already knew that.  ;D

EPIC info Bruce!! 😎 A few of us definitely helped put a dent in that perch population. 😁

I wonder what a pile of 192,000 perch looks like??🤔😜

They did a creel survey this winter January - March. 1 person interviewed around 700 fisherman all around the lake. They actually traveled around the lake via snowmobile, they didnít just wait at access points.

I would assume that from there they made a calculation based on the total number of fisherman counted in the areas.

Just drove by the lake on the south shore by the big islands.  West wind whipping big time some pretty good white caps.  No ice in sight anywhere.  Time to get the boat uncovered and start to get things ready.

Just stopped by at the hatchery on Sunday. Kudos to those guys and gals who work that amazing event, employees and volunteers alike.  They put in some long hours and if you were in the wet Sunday, then you know it was chilly. They do this every day all day and keep smiling the whole time.  If you've never seen the walleye run at the hatchery you have a couple days left to experience this amazing event. You get to see some real beauties as they make their annual run up the stream. Touring the hatchery never gets old for me. I love it. Get up there and give those folks a big thank you. It's because of them that we have such wonderful fishing here in NY.
