6-10 Inches of Ice

Red Lake - Hope Valley, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The lake has a foot of snow with about 6-10 inches of snow. Many anglers have been out. But not much action has been reported.  A few small rainbows on night crawlers. I personally like to jig a small gold Kastmaster or a Thomas Bouyant spoon right off the bottom. No need to go out to far from shore. Most fish are caught within 20 to 50 feet from shore. If you have never ice fished before. The Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters are offering guides to show how its done. They can be reached at 530-541-8208

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.
