I am from Ludlow, there is no safe ice i know of in my area.  Have been fishing greenfield, orange area for the past 3 weeks.  Ice is plenty thick, minimum 8".  Max 15"  Anything north of northampton should be safe!  If anyone fishing CT valley knows of safe ice pls post?  I am sure this sat much will be safe.

Heard Hampton Ponds had 8" by the boat launch last Saturday. A couple of guys were out about 100-150'. They drilled a series of holes on the way out. I would think it's better now.

Went to Congamond middle pond today at 7. 8 fishermen on the ice when my daughter and I arrived. I had her wait on shore while I checked the ice. I drilled a couple of holes 1.5" of ice. Needless to say we didn't fish.

Anything new reports after the weekend.


We fished Goose Pond and had 13-14" of ice, also went by Metacomet and found some of the edges were still showing water.

A couple of guys were on the Chicopee River cove with the river side of the cove open. It's usually frozen this time of the year.
