February 26th, 2014

Lake Conditions:

The slush from last weekends storms has hardened up again, so the lake is accessible to 4 wheelers and 4 Wheel drive vehicles. BE CAREFUL because it is rough!

Also KEEP AN EYE OUT - some fishermen have plowed from the shoreline to their shanty's - and they are not all marked. You don't want to hit one of the snowbanks.

Ice Report:

We still have about 20"+ of ice out there. Last weekend there was some water from the creek down in the bay by Lakeside. It has refrozen, but be aware.

My prediction is that the Lake will be nice and smooth again by March 23rd.

Water Level:

Is just about as low as it gets right now. All the islands are out and visible. The Trap Islands look like gigantic hills. There is still quite a bit of snow covering up the rocks and stumps, so most hazards should be snow covered.

The Mullyville Trail - Sacandaga access by Turner Road still looks good.


has slowed down somewhat, we are still in a mid winter lull due to the cold weather.

Tip of the Week:
If you have plowed a path to your shanty - be considerate and mark it with a reflector. ( if you see it is in a major snowmobile access point) It is no fun to hit one of those and go flying off your snow machine!

Join us for Fuel-n-Food's Weekend Long Fishing Contest
You can join us for the Pig Roast at Wally's on Saturday!

Also Lakeside Tavern is hosting their Annual Snowmobile Fun Run to benefit the Northville Rotary Club. Always a good time!

Ice Report: 

There is a consistent 20" of ice everywhere! There are no real ridges to speak of ( which we usually have at this point) And the rocks and stumps on the shoreline are covered in snow! Don't ride up by the Dam as this is still a hazard!

Water Level:

The water level is way down, so no water around Scout Island and Lakeside Tavern

Snow Report:

There is plenty of snow on the ice and no slush! The flat good surfaces that were good for 4 wheelers and cars are gone - So even pick up trucks will get stuck in the snow now due to the deeper snow! 


We are in a mid winter lull. Northerns are steady, but everything else has slowed down. Don't worry it will pick up again in a couple of weeks.


This Sunday at Lanzi's on the Lake. The trail conditions are great do ride your snow machine to the Great Sacandaga and enjoy some great fireworks!

Tip of the Week:

Make Sure your shanty is jacked up high enough!
