Anglers are reporting safe ice and good fishing for big rainbows up to 5 pounds! Try fishing in 5-10 feet of water using orange and chartreuse Maniac Cutter Bugs and Gizzy bugs. Also tipping your lures with a chunk of night crawler helps.
Ryan Mosley reports that the Ice is thickening fast uplake and continues to extend down reservoir. The leading ice edge on Sunday (6th) was just south of Holmes Crossing and behind it the ice was 4-inches or thicker! Ryan caught some nice rainbow trout up to three pounds using Berkley Power Nymph in crayfish color, tipped with a meal worm right on the bottom. Don’t forget the Burbot Bash slated for Feb 1st-3rd!
