Long Pond (Winter Ice Fishing)

Note to Ice Anglers:  IAW AR215-5 Chapter 4; 4-2 Authorized Fishing Areas.

Bull Pond and Round Pond will only be open to fishing during the NYS trout season and Lusk Reservoir will be open from 1 April through 30 November.

Anglers should be aware that ice conditions are extremely variable due to weather, currents, depth and other conditions. In general, three to four inches of good, clear ice is a minimum for safety. Milky ice is weaker and should be thicker. Ice Anglers are responsible to personally verify ice safety as the enter the lake area and where they intend on fishing. Do not rely on the presence of other fishermen or previous experience. Conditions are changeable! USAG West Point does not monitor ice thickness and cannot guarantee participants' personal safety while on the ice. For additional information on ice safety and ice fishing regulations please see: https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/7733.html
