We accessed yesterday off governors island. Pretty risky around the pressure cracks and heaves. There was open water at the heaves for hundreds of yards in both directions. Take caution with the ATV's

Somebody dropped a shack in about 20 or 30 feet off the middle of the launch, that was before the tape and warm weather. Most guys were using the beach as an access point. I'll fish elsewhere until it firms back up.

The Boatlanding at Warner bay has caution tape across it. I would assume the sheriffs department or DNR put that up? the lake did not look pretty

I would not advise going to Spring Harbor there Springs in that area. Captain Bills or Mendota Park safe bet.

You might try Spring Harbor boat landing.

All accesses in that area (McKenna park, Tent Colony, Second Point) are walk-in only.


edit - none are particularly easy access, and involve hauling gear large vertical distances to get to the lake (and back)
