Vermont Ice Fishing Conditions

Vermont Ice Fishing Conditions


These conditions have been acquired from multiple sources and are to be used as basic guidance for where “safe” ice can be found. Remember, ice is never 100% safe and these conditions are only to be used as guidance. It is 100% your responsibility to assure a location is safe to venture out onto. Fishing Northeast in no way will be held responsible for mishaps or inaccurate information. While we try to gain specific locations on bodies of water it is not always possible. Many reports are of general lake name with no specifics and sometimes not even an indication of which Lake “X” is being mentioned, some states have more than one Lake “X”. Have any other ice reports? Please comment below or contact us with details.


Please use extreme caution with these ice conditions. After last weeks warm temperatures and rain we saw many issues with edges, running water and drilled holes opening up on the ice from rain drainage. Many of these reports are from prior to the warmup as anglers have been slow to venture back into areas due to unsafe conditions.
