No, I don't believe so. You can only ice fish on a few selected inland lakes, and Ritchie lake is not on the list. You CAN ice fish on the river, though, as it's tideal water and you don't even need a license.

McManus Lake: Hampton, at the end of Villa street, past the church, drive at the end of the dirt road and park. Walk down the trail on the right which leads you right to the lake. Lots of chain pickerel.
Oram Lake: Kingston Penninsula. (google earth it for spot, and google it for what's in there as I don't know)
Mud Lake: By the civic building in Quispamsis (where they have the fire station as well, in behind Daley's Irving accross from the Junction Club (driving range). Not sure what's in there either.

the gate on Oram is still up to debate as the law stipulates that if there is only one road leading up to a lake that that road cannot be blocked by any form of gate or otherwise, and if there is more then one road leading up to a public lake, then at least one must be unblocked. Oram is a public lake as it's listed on the DNR website for ice fishing. Whoever has it geted is breaking the provincial law. Same thing happened to the road leading up to McManus one year, and they had to unblock it. Anyway, what's the worst that can happen? They yell at you? Ouuu! scarry! They sure cannot charge you with anything.
As for Mud lake, I've never fished it, but based on where it leads to, I reckon there would be some brook trout in there as brookies hold below it in the spring. In summertime it looks like it would hold some sunfish and yellow perch, so you should catch those there.
