Not a bad day on Ponaganset today and seemed to a decent amount of people fishing.

I guess as long as we don't get too much rain we still have a little to work with

Waterman still has some juice. I suspect plank and spud for the weekend and it would be fishable. Edges still look pretty tight to shore on the rte 44 access side.

Good to hear. Was there last Friday. Edges were great but there were a couple basketball court sizes open spots and was afraid they would have spread.

On Waterman - I can only view it from the drive by but the ice is starting to get plenty white so suspect some soft spots in moving water or submerged springs.

Waterman drive by report. Edges are unsafe out to about 12' there is a very large open spot dead in the middle. Looks like unless we get another stretch of cold weather Waterman is pretty close to toast for this season.

Wilson's had 8" - 10" of ice on Sunday.  About 20 to 25 people and like 4 Quads.  Should still be good. Edges were fine.

Think I might hit wilsons or something in that neck of the woods Sunday if conditions are decent. Have some lost time to make up for. Good job getting out there guys

RBIII,

I was fishing a hundred yards or so, south of you guys. I walked over with my daughter and a buddy.

Did anyone get out in the Burrillville / Gloucester area this past weekend and/or does anyone have any updated ice conditions for the same? Hoping to get out this coming weekend on Wilson's.

Watermans is pretty open in the middle and along the edges on Rte 44. Bowdish suprisingly still has a pretty good batch of center ice, edges are sketchy. They closed the spillway so it's refilling for the spring. Not sure north of me.   Like Wilson's etc.

Access at Wilson's is a little iffy.  The edge at the ramp is best on the left side. Still good ice once you get out to it.

Edge should be getting better, dam has been opened up to lower water level . So iffy edge should be disappearing at Wilsons.
How are the edges ?

I checked out a few central, north central ponds and the ice has taken a beating for sure. Not just edges but very unstable ice. If you go searching, use your noggin. These next few days will not help either. NORTH.
Just add water.

As of Today... Waterman's is toast If you decide to fish it, use a kayak.
