It’s the First day of spring!
Many of the reservoirs in the area are starting to open up, with these ice off conditions there is a great opportunity for good fishing!
The ice is breaking up again near the dam and the inlets are opening up this is a great time to target this Reservoir and the wild Browns that live there, in addition there are a good number of rainbow trout hold overs from last year that are available, we’ve also picked up some tiger trout and splake.
Ice is starting to look pretty sloppy, there is some open water at the springs, it’s been hit and miss there for us, with one day catching 10 or 15 and the next 0!
Access is possible with a high clearance vehicle four wheel drive is recommended, as the road is still wet and in some places there was still snow. The reservoir was completely open water.
The ice was coming off fast with lots of open water! This is the time to target this reservoir in our experience! The cutthroat seem to have made a come back compared to the last couple of years.
Ice was off and there were boats on the water! There have been a few good reports of some big rainbows being caught using traditional midge below an indicator rig!
Get out there and enjoy the ice off conditions!
