We got 4 inches of snow last night, which finally put the Ausable River under 40 degrees. We had a wicked good fall with warm temps continuing through half of November allowing us to extend our season a few weeks. We want to thank all of our clients and customers and supporters of the shop for your support this season! We love what we do here and we love sharing it. That’s what its all about. Lots of are relationships formed, and with Covid and border closure from CA , lots of relationships re-kindled. It was great seeing so many clients that have not been able to visit the past few years. Please join us for our GUIDED ICE FISHING TRIPS this winter. We have a very successful routine throughout the Adirondacks for all species. Lake Trout, Pan fish, pike and bass – you name it – we have a trip dialed for each species.  Can’t wait until next year! We recommend being on the books by Mid March for your peak May-June Dates!
