The ice is just starting to pull off on the Soldier Creek side of the reservoir. The ice on the Strawberry side is still a week away from coming off. Try fishing with a black marabou jig. Cast onto the ice and slowly retrieve it back.
Open water reported and fishing conditions are excellent. Fish appear to be more interested in moving bait. try chub or sucker meat, nightcrawlers or salmon eggs. PowerBait will work well with rainbows. Chartreuse or rainbow colors are the best.
