Ice Out

by beats143 • April 16, 2015 • No Comments

A few days later than last year, but she is finally clear of ice. The lake level continues to rise and is now around 371.5. We have avoided shore damage this year, here is hoping that we don’t run into flooding now. With the water high and the run off[…]

Keeping Our Fingers Crossed

So far the ice has been gentle on Oneida Lake. Checked out Sylvan Beach yesterday and it was loaded with people hitting the bars and restaurants, which was nice to see. Very little ice accumulation with no wind yesterday. The melt is going very slow, but it’s going to be[…]

Slowly Melting

by beats143 • April 10, 2015 • No Comments

Actually saw more than a few boats out this week working the south bay area near Oneida Creek. Some others are working shoreline areas of the Oneida River for panfish. Last I heard of anyone on the actual ice–it had to be pretty sketchy–was as late as Wednesday, so a[…]

The Melt is On

Shore areas have fallen apart and people are wisely staying off the lake at this point. Warm temperatures and rain in the forecast all week. I imagine we will see boat traffic soon. I think the lake will be largely ice free by the end of the weekend.

An Odd Year

With walleye now closed for the season and conditions stuck in the muck zone now for weeks, many have opted to pack their ice gear up and call it a year. For those of you sticking it out, we should start to see some better ice conditions out there. After[…]

Firmed Up Friday

by beats143 • March 13, 2015 • No Comments

Well it was plenty cold last night and things firmed back up again. We are supposed to get to 45F today but as of noonish, we are still at 30F and the sun is hidden behind some cloud activity. Really not getting much melting as of yet, as I stepped[…]

Some Fish With Your Soup?

Well we stayed in the upper 30s last night and the rain missed most of the lake, call it a glancing blow. From the radar it looked like it might have brushed the SE corner of Oneida Lake, but I don’t have any actual confirmation. We will reach a high[…]

A Warm One

by beats143 • March 10, 2015 • No Comments

A high of 47F today and the low tonight is 35F so we are not going to see a refreeze for tomorrow. Wednesday the high will reach 41F and winds are reasonable both days. As far as the weekend goes, right now Sunday looks to be a better day with[…]

Less Than A Week

by beats143 • March 9, 2015 • No Comments

We are barreling toward the end of the walleye season as we have now approached the last week of the season. High of 38F for Monday and Tuesday will climb to a whopping 46F. Temps look upper 30s to mid 40s through the extended outlook with manageable wind conditions. We[…]

Nice Weekend

by beats143 • March 7, 2015 • No Comments

Both weekend days at 32F for the high with Sunday having more wind. We are warming into early next week and everyone is worried about the top of the ice turning into soup… Two sure signs of spring coming with Syracuse’s last basketball game of the season and the clocks[…]

Cold Again For a Bit

by beats143 • March 5, 2015 • 2 Comments

Going to drop to -2F tonight and hopefully that will help firm things up. The high temperature will be rising each day into Tuesday of next week. Sleds are still generally moving fine and wheelers are still a no go. The overnights will be cold enough to firm things up[…]
