King of the Ice crowned in White Lake

WHITE LAKE, NY — “We have beautiful conditions, plenty of ice, an incredible sunny day and lots of kids, what more could we ask for?” Those words, spoken by Sullivan County Conservation Club (SCCC) secretary Jay Mendels last Sunday were echoed across the lake throughout the day.

This is an aerial image of Walker Lake in Shohola, PA, in early December. The ice is too thin to hold anyone. The lower right portion of the lake shows the inlet stream and the absence of ice in that area. There are three holes together near the center frame, which is likely a spring.

Got ice?

With New Years behind us, a lot of people are looking forward to getting involved in seasonal outdoor activities, including skiing and snowshoeing. By January, the ice fishing season has usually kicked off in most of the region; in fact, in some areas, it is a tradition to do some ice fishing on New Years Day.


Ed Wesely took these photos of Walter Bryk back in 2005. At the time, he wrote, “Walter Byrk has motored from Dupont, near Wilkes Barre PA, to fish on the ice at Narowsburg’s Big Eddy. In the picture, Walter holds up three Walleyes he caught on Sunday, December 18.”
