DEC Lake George Announcement

NOTICE: Lake George Boat LaunchThe New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Lake George Boat Launch remains open to use by boaters at this time.
DEC does not plow the main parking area to protect the porous pavement. When snow depths increase or ice forms on the lake the gate will be shut and the launch will be closed.
 
Ice anglers and others will be able to access the ice on the lake by parking in the auxiliary parking area on the south side of Beach Road. DEC will put up temporary fencing to create a path with packed snow from the parking area to the lake.
 Snowmobiles are prohibited in the main parking area outside of the fenced path as they will damage the porous pavement.
 
Boaters, anglers, and others seeking to access the lake should call the DEC Warrensburg office at 518-623-1200 before traveling to boat launch to learn whether the gate is open or closed.

    Is it possible to say when the lake is open for ice fishing in 2019?

    I just posted what DEC put out as a press release, as there are others here who fish Lake George.  I'm > 300 miles away, closer ponds if I want to "water walk".   I am pretty sure that it is no longer possible to ice fish this part of 2019, and it is unlikely to freeze in December based on what others reported in the past.
