IceBalls I'm more concerned if the entry fee or other things with the Mahogany Ridge contest have changed from last year. You are correct ice conditions permitting the contest is held on the Saturday before King of the ice contest.

I believe its catch and release...has lots of dink perch ..but that was some time ago .There was a recent draw down(2 yrs ago or so) to fix the dam . Not familiar with its exact depth but like most lakes in the area sure its no more then 15-18 fow at its deepest near the dam area .Access is private.

Well the temps are going to cooperate beginning by days end ..but the wind is pretty steady at 15 plus mph now and expect to continue all day/night ..some of the southern most parts of the larger bodies of water has ice forming(again) but getting a beaten due to the wind..smaller lakes and ponds may be fishable by Sunday..some by Saturday lil further North ..don't expect it to be much more then 4 inches by the end of the weekend on said ponds/lakes ..looks to be making ice for the next 15 days north of Wurtsboro NY area.

Going back to 1970 I was working at the Dodge Inn steak house which is right across from the water pump house. I fished Louise Marie a lot back that summer and caught a bunch of monster pickerel and bass. My wife worked at Hershel realty and he has the big house right at the dam. Not sure about the lake association rules regarding ice fishing but your buddy should be able to find out from the association. I am very sure it has all the basic shallow water fare, bass, pickerel, perch, cat fish and possibly crappie. I never heard of any trout or walleye in it and doubt they are in there.

If I agreed with you we would both be wrong!

Hardwater might know about two other lakes I have always wondered about. Wanasink allows fishing by association owners and guests but I have no idea what they catch.

Back in the late 60s and early 70s I worked at the Concord and I know for sure they put trout in Kiamesha and allowed guests to fish for them. If the guest caught some fish they would even cook them for him. I have no idea what they catch there now but I do see guys fishing it all summer and sometimes on the ice. If the trout are still there they can't be kept in ice season because of the regulations but I would love to know what fish they do catch and how deep that lake is.

I would give them a try ...all three lakes.. I haven't seen many ...if any on the lakes around Emerald Green ..so not much winter pressure...add electronics to that mix could get a good handle on it in short order . As for Wanasink lota pickerel..not certain any trout ..been told there is a 30 foot spot .. some scrappy small mouth.. nothing of great size but good eaten size/fight.

Hello gamalot. I do fish Kiamesha about two three times a year. I morning go about 10-20' of water for I'm sure you can find deeper spots if. As for fish. Crappy, putch, Bass pick, and cat. I haven't caught anything else.

harwater Diehard thank you for the updated information on the King of the Ice contest.
Need Ice welcome to Ice Shanty.
Wet Dreams I think the February date is a back up bad weather/unsafe ice in Jan. Keep a watch on the Swan Lake FD's facebook page I'm sure people will be asking questions closer we get to Jan.27 TH.

I'm thinking of fishing Superior on Saturday, so if that's near where you're checking and you can report back with conditions that would be awesome. Thanks

I fished superior on Tuesday on the side closer to 17b there was 5 inches of ice but the shoreline was shot we were able to get on but you might want to bring a plank with you just in case the edges dont stiffen up with all this wind as for fishing nothing great bunch of small perch and pickerel

 I have a buddy with a place on wanasink, they have been making an effort to keep a population of trout from what I hear (hopefully accurate rumor).  He's heard people saying to kill all of the smallies they catch to help the trout LOL.  Only if they realized how good smallies taste  ::)  Those smalls fight there! love catching them in the summer on senkos

I grew up around here and haven't heard much about lake louise marie, but I am sure you can find some good spots.  I never see anyone out on the ice or boats for that matter.  I fish Yankee Lake and this past weekend was tons of open water.  Extra windy up there today

Anybody know about big pond?  Thinking a little further north will be better.

Well I did a little drive around in my local area this morning ..the overnight winds has kept the waters open for the most part ..some ice forming in sheltered cove/bays and forming on the outer edges..it had been below freezing since just before sunset yesterday but windy ..24 F now..winds are expected to be 24 mph but diminishing through the next couple of days...next 10-15 days looks to be good for ice making.

Thanks for the heads up. But not fun dragging a full sled throw mud. Maybe I'll try it one year when I pack light.
