Would anyone be willing to provide some information on the ice conditions? Going to try to get out here on the 18th with some friends. Thanks!
Two Sisters, Oneida County
Canoe, there's a good number of lmb in the west end of lake, fish weedy bays, points, and fallen wood with wacky worms or weedless bass jigs. If you're looking for bigger bass it wouldn't be my first choice, never caught one over 16", lots of 12"-14"ers. There are some bigger smallies over 20" on the main lake though. Good luck out there.
Roller trailer will get you in but it's shallow 50 ft out. I always take my hip waders to walk the boat off and get it out to navigable water. It's all sand but if your hull gets beached you're going to have to get out anyway to pull it off.
Thanks for help.
Are there any lakes around that might provide better options for the panfish/bullheads. I've been out the Rainbow and a few others, but the Rainbow is so big to figure out on limited time.
Anyway, thanks again for the input and if anyone has anything else, I appreciate it.

I was up with the family this past weekend and saw a baby bullhead dying on the surface. I've been fishing this lake at least twice a year for the past 15 years and that is only the second bullhead I've ever seen on it.
As far as panfish, they are mostly stunted and small, but are pretty easy to catch. They were bedding when we were up there last weekend. It's fairly easy to get into some smaller largemouth bass as well, which my kids always seem to like.
There is a tiny alcove in the middle to west side on the south shore of the western lake (hope that makes sense) that is a great action place to take kids in the morning through mid-afternoon. Seemed to completely shut down later in the day. We were catching bluegills, smallmouth, and largemouth there and even saw a decent northern pike.
Few, don't think you're going to find much in bullheads at Two Sisters, it's a very clean deeper water lake. For bluegills and crappies I'd concentrate on the bays in the western half of the lake, they're shallower and weedier. Gills you should catch in weeds and fallen trees. Crappies are more evening and low light, like I said, very clear water. They should be starting to suspend off the deep weedlines. Try around the island in the west end too, it's very rocky with steep dropoffs, I have caught some 10"-11" perch in the past all around the island in 15'-25' of water. They're more active extremely early (like 4am-6am) before the sun gets too high. Good luck, interesting lake.
