Does anybody know if the sand bar or Keeler bay is open. My plans are to be fishing this wednesday for my first outing of the year.
Thanks

Outer Malletts Bay has a lot of open water. Inner bay still looks locked. It won't be long

Probably old news, but Apple Island launch is open (no dock) and also Keeler Bay (no dock). Saw a bunch of boats out today. remember that the water is very cold. Caution is required to fish at this time of year-there is still moving ice, and there is a lot of "stuff" in the water yet. best of luck to everyone, and remember to put safety first! Bryan

Depends on what you are looking to catch. For Salmon as Fishy1 said the bridge or port henry to fish the area in and around bulwaga bay. If you are looking for lakers, winooski river launch and fish the flat in front of the river. If you are looking for bass, most any launch will be fine, and basing location on weather will be a best bet. Also this time of year the launch in Mallets bay is a good one for multi species action, Bass, Pike, Salmon, Lakers, pretty much everything can be had withing a 10 mile boat ride in different areas outside that bay.

As flyguy said, Apple Island launch is open and Keeler's Bay is ice free. There was a LOT of debris in Keeler's on Sunday, though! Very large sticks, lots of leaves, a plastic bag that tried to drown my board, etc, etc. Had to constantly clear the lines and boards of crap. Also, there was still a lot of ice east of Cedar Island, so no fishing over by Eagle Mtn / George shore yet.

Good luck!

Hows Port Henry launch looking? Everyone just using the wall at this point? I'm assuming no docks have been put in yet?
