There is ice in the coves and the south end of the lake but still some shoreline with open water to fish. The warm weather and even some rain here this week, is keeping the lake from freezing over. It looks like Sunday, December 11, will be the best day for fishing for the next 10 days as we are in a very wet cycle right now. Next weekend also has single digit low air temperatures, which will probably freeze the lake over, so take advantage of the open water this Sunday. The usual wooly buggers, seal buggers and leech patterns as well as the more common nymphs are all effective. Olive and/or rust colored balanced leeches along with chironomid patterns are producing trout at the south end. Trout are actively feeding on chironomids(midge larva). Orange seemed to be the best color for PowerBait. Bass fishing is slow and probably done for the year.
