Southern Luzerne county
« on: Jan 19, 2020, 04:03 PM »
 I drove around southern Luzerne county today. Ceasetown open. Moon lake looked about half frozen from the boat launch out. Silkworth open. Sylvan 95% open. A little at the launch and outlet areas. Susquehanna/Wayne county/Poconos might be the only areas safe next weekend.

Just a FYI, they are all in Northern Luzerne county, ceasetown is illegal to ice fish and Silkworth is private.

I will try to get a report on Silkworth later. I know a guy that drives past it every day. If that capped  Moon and Sylvan should be too.

Silkworh capped overnight last night. I imagine moon did the same but I didn't check it. I live right between the two.

Sucks. For sure. Here in SEPA all the lakes were open water  on Wed. Now they all have skim ice again. I can't even fish the open water. Now that sucks !

I've been out 16 times this season.  But, not in Luzerne County.
