minnewaska access conditions

seen a few truck out there yesterday, hows the accesses, would it be best to walk out now or is there still a decent way on to the glenwood side with a truck? I went on the beach about 4 days ago and it looked like it was about shot. But maybe it healed with the cool overnight temps? confused.gif

I went out from the beach Saturday with my pickup. I wouldn’t try it again. The first 30 ft was not good. After that the ice was fine. Maybe the strong NW wind today will push the good ice to shore. wink.gif Are there other areas on the Glenwood side that people drive on?

Definelitly 4 wheeler or walk from here on. Not bad conditions to pull a sled by hand if not going real far. Good crappie bite from 6:30-8 pm.

Are you catching any size to the crappies? Was out there a couple weekends ago, and we caught mostly sunfish (a few over 1/2) and only 5 crappies. What bothered me was they were no bigger than the lakes around here. I remember catching some nice (12"+) fish there, but these were barely 10. Thanks for replies.

Most were 8-10 in., some 10-11, You could sort to a 10-11 inch average. I throw the big ones back as well as the smaller. The mid size are easy enough to clean for me and I don't need that many.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
