Please use extreme caution venturing out there are still a lot of bad spot on the Lake and with the snow cover you will not be able to see them. With conditions the way they are if you have not been on any particular place recently you should carry an ice chisel and check the ice as you move around .

January 26 , 2017

The ice conditions around Lake Champlain are getting pretty poor at this point with very little freezing weather over the past 2 weeks there are still a few places to go but bring a chisel and check the ice as you go DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE THICKNESS OF THE ICE it is very weak you need to be on 8 to 10 inches right now to be safe because the top 4 to 6 inches is rotten . On a positive note the weather is going to tur colder in the next couple days and the ice will harden up and be much safer by next Monday Lake Trout , Northern pike , Walleye and most Panfish are biting very well now if you can get to them safely February should be an outstanding month for ice fishing so make plans now and catch some big ones. BE SAFE OUT THERE WHEN IN DOUGHT DONT GO OUT!

The ice fishing season has been great so far we have decent ice on the northern and southern end of Lake Champlain  and most of the ponds. Yellow Perch , Sunfish and Northern Pike have been biting good in many of the ice covered bays around the Lake Champlain. Lake Trout , Salmon and Walleye have been slow on Lake Champlain due to the lack of ice on the good locations. Some of the Lakes in the area have been producing some nice Walleye and good catches of Yellow Perch . I conditions for the most part vary from 3 to 10 inches so pay attention and be careful when venturing out.

Looks like it will be a late start to the ice fishing season here on Lake Champlain with water temps still in the low to mid 40s on most of the Lake and not much cold weather in sight . The fishermen that are still taking there boats out are catching lots of Salmon but most are small in the 15 to 17 inch size range they are also catching quite a few Lake Trout and an occasional Brown Trout and Steelhead Trout. It appears that our Cold water fishery is in excellent shape and we should have another outstanding spring and summer in 2016. We would also like to this time wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season and prosperous New Year.
