Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: There is still good ice, which is around a foot thick. There are signs, though, that the surface is melting during the day and refreezing at night. The roads are generally passable, especially in the morning when everything is frozen. The roads can get muddy during the day, so try to get out early. Try using a mealworm or a piece of nightcrawler on a bare hook or small jig. Smaller, light-colored offerings seem to be working the best. The area received very little snow. That made is so that anglers cold drive up to the reservoir all winter, bu tit also means that the water level will likely be low.
