Veteran's ice fishing get away

Post By: adrenaline_junkie_ff      Posted: 12/18/2021 12:46:25 PM     Points: 10072    
So I am working on setting up a 3 day trip for a non-profit to Lake John area next month and have snowmobiles to haul gear and people. I can't seem to locate info on what lakes allow snowmobiles and which don't. We will be looking primarily for numbers of fish but good size fish wouldn't hurt either. Can anyone make a recommendation on which lakes up there will fit our requirements?

Lake John does. You can drive your vehicle on it if the ice is thick enough.

If you look at the condition report for all the North Park Lakes, the ice is NOT good at all , especially to drive anything on it in my opinion.

FMFO thank you for that but this isn't for tomorrow but rather middle of next month.

Lake John, the Delaney Buttes, Big Creek Lakes and Lake Cowdrey lall allow snowmobiles......

However, Ice conditions are not ideal currently as most of the lakes mentioned except for cow dream has recently formed has recently formed and is only 22 and a 1/2 inches thick at best in many places. Please call lake John resort and I can give you more details.....
