Took a trip to Fern Lake today in the Black Brook region. The ice was only 2” thick and mostly cloudy and weak. Lots of anglers saying on social media that the Saranac Region, and the ADK region are frozen and we encourage everyone to use caution. Although some smaller lakes protected from wind may be frozen, many lakes have only a glazed surface of mm’s of ice. It depends where your are. Lake Colby was wide open a few days ago. Lake Champlain near Peru/plattsburgh has absolutely zero shore ice and is wide open. I would not say anywhere is “frozen” at this time although you may find some smaller protected ponds with enough ice for light travel. We are heading out tomorrow to scope many ponds in the Saranac vicinity and will update soon.
