    Northern end of Pymie is freezing up pretty fast snow covered ice as far as you can see from the spillway. Water below the spillway froze up noticeably from 11 am to 4 pm today. Hopefully Sundays predicted warm temps & rain won't materialize

    Ponds by me have about 2 inches of ice. Can't wait to see how many knuckleheads will be out on them this Saturday.

    I wait til there's atleast 4 inches of good black ice. Too many springs in the ponds to risk going out on anything thinner. OTH

    I just read a long term forcast for NW Pa. seems the "experts" think we will have a warm Jan and Feb with highs in the 40's.
    I like icefishing but love open water fishing. I hope they are right but I know alot of guys love the cold. well, at least someone will be happy...

    The weather does not look good for hard water any time soon.  Hope it changes, love to get out on the ice a couple times, been going every Christmas for years and don't want to stop that tradition of taking out my little cousins and old man to catch a couple and just have fun.
