RE: Anyone fish Chautauqua through ice?
Never fished it through the ice, but we fished it this past summer and were into perch and blue gills all week whenever we wanted to go for them. I don't know of any special regulations, stop in at the bait shop and get a 3 day license and some little perch jigs tipped with a little piece of night crawler. You should do well. If you've fished it for bass you know the drop offs. If not go to the boat launch at Predergast and walk down to the point where the marina is there are pole sticking out of the water. That's where the drop off is. Fish from there to 30 yards out working your way back to the boat launch. That should give you a good start.
