Renee and I ventured up to do some ice fishing last weekend. The lake had 18 inches of ice closer to the edge of the lake and 14 inches as we ventured out farther, with no snow on top. Through the day we saw many anglers out enjoying the day. We tried jigs, powerbait, salmon eggs and unfortunately we did not catch any fish. Others during the day had the same luck. but did see a few bites. I talked with Joe at the Caples Lake resort, he reported an angler catching a few the week before on mealworms. We saw some venturous anglers that walked in from Woods Creek to ice fish on the north end. There was about 6 to 12 inches of snow on the ground

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.
