I was shore fishing Sunday night and it was barely .25" of ice on Echo, also the waves where breaking up the ice quite a bit as well. There were huge open holes of water surrounded by ice on Sunday. I checked yesterday and it was barely over an 1'', so I would not take any chances and fish here. The river portion is open mostly year round by the dam area since that has a lot of current going through especially after any rain or snow fall, that's the only area I would fish from shore. Otherwise try finding a lake that has thicker ice.....
I see people ice fishing how much ice is out there
61° - 65° F
Fished under a road bridge for a few hours, (not the railroad bridge), we caught 3 smallies, one at 2.5# and one northern about 25". I missed a nice one, had him on for about 10 seconds, never saw him, he didn't want to come up. then he spit the hook. Probably a nice smallie.
I stopped by Echo Lake today, and on the falls end where it turns into the White, I had the Pleasure of Observing a (Trout)? fisherman working that line like a Master. I drive an hour just for the blessing of being able to fish in this beautiful State. I recently took my PB and 1st Walleye, a 22" er, closer to south Burlington, on the Fox. Our fishing in Ga. presents a whole different set of Challenges. More rules here, but better. Lots of wood in the water, and snags on the Fox. Echo Lake looks like a Dream. Cant wait to toss some mepps lures. and swim baits before the Lake freezes.
Ice is gone. The car has sunk.
Can someone provide an ice report for me? Haven't made it over to this neck of the woods yet and was thinking about trying this spot out tomorrow.
Thanks in advance
I noticed some people out fishing. How much ice is out there?
I know there’s pike in there but what about panfish? CARPIO
Are people already ice fishing this? If so, what is the ice depth?
