I received a report this week, I have not heard of in many years. Friend and fellow angler Josh Otto went up fish the lake and it was good thing he brought his ice auger. The lake still had 3.5 feet of snow and ice on it as of last Wednesday. Josh did very well with a few nice pan sized rainbow trout. He was jigging a gold Kastmaster. I recommend to always use cation this time of year on the ice. Josh is an experienced ice angler, I would not recommend the average angler venture out.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
