Thread: Finger Lake

  1. #1

    Default Finger Lake

    Heard from multiple sources that there are holes starting to opening up on Finger Lake. Know we had a warm winter but it seems early. Can anyone confirm?

    That doesn't make any sense, I don't know of any hot springs in the lake and as of February 19 the last time I was out there I had to drill through nearly 3 feet of ice.

    I drove around Saturday and there were half a dozen vehicles and ice was still solid, no grayness/candling. The access points were starting to melt, with a couple inches of water and broken ice on the shoreline. There is one spring that stays open year round on Finger. Looking from the state boat launch, the island has an open spring about 100-200 yards to the left of its near end. That is the only one I know of. With this weather, conditions can change very rapidly. Be careful!

    I heard Finger was looking sketchy as well. Not looking promising for my weekend plans....

    We started keeping our dogs off the ice on Finger Lake the other day. I wouldn't try it.
