HAINES FALLS — On Feb 10., ECOs Woodin and Bohling, along with Forest Rangers Fox and Patterson, attended an educational ice fishing clinic at North-South Lake Campground in the town of Haines Falls. The clinic, organized by West Kill Brewing, LLC., and run by licensed fishing guides from Adirondack Ice, emphasized sustainability and safe practices while ice fishing. Attendees of age purchased New York State fishing licenses and learned how to determine safe ice conditions. 

Once on the ice, the guides divided the 30 participants into three groups for hands-on experience using augers, setting tip-ups, using jig rods properly, and operating fish finders. The ECOs assisted in providing general fishing and bait fish regulations to the anglers. 

In addition to the various ice fishing lessons, participants also caught pickerel. 

Visit the DEC website for more information on ice fishing safety.
