Default Georgetown?

Anybody have any info or tips for Georgetown--thickness of ice, techniques, etc? Looking to head up with scuba_steve tomorrow to freeze my buns off and hopefully catch a fish or two...or three...or four...and so forth. Is it easy to get around--we both have small sedans.

Thanks!

Yes, it is super easy to get around. You can park on the road by the dam and walk over or park further west by the bridge and walk down either side. Good luck.

Which lake holds more fish--the smaller one or bigger one? And what's this is here about the wind and moving water by the bridge--are we talking the bridge that connects the two lakes?

It's actually just one lake. There will be moving water under and by the bridge - don't walk over it even if it looks frozen. You'll probably fall through if you do (the ice never really freezes to any good thickness there). Most people ice fish it on the east side of the bridge.

Try small tube jigs like crappie jigs in white or pink with one or two wax worms on the hook.* It is usually non stop action for small stocker size bows.* I have seen a few big browns pulled out as well though.* Fish around 15 fow or so.* It is usually very windy and cold.* Keep everything in your bucket and sit on it if your not using it.* I have seen numerous buckets go blowing across that lake. If you take a hut make sure you anchor it! I have been blown across that lake in a hut before and trust me it is not fun even though it is quite comical to see!

Made it to Georgetown...in TWO HOURS! Traffic was horrible!!!!!!!! Weather was nice...not too breezy, not too cold. Dug a few holes while being laughed at by the large group of fisherman near us since they had a gas powered auger and we were going old school. Ice was about 10-12 inches thick. We fished east of the bridge. I got three trout and scuba_steve got the good ol' skunko'. I should have landed more but it was my first time out on the ice in ages but first time actually fishing on the ice--pretty damn scary at first but I was okay after awhile.

My three hit a crappie jig tipped with a mealworm. Other groups around us were pretty successful--some browns were being pulled through the ice and another dude from a different group landed a monster bow.

Here's my first monster:



Here's scuba_steve taking a dump in his bucket...oh wait, he's jigging. ha ha

Form the looks of it you guys were in a decent spot! Sounds like it was a fun day (despite the long drive). Just wait until January and February when the "Our Gang" jeep club starts running their races up there - good stuff to watch while fishing.

I meant to say east of the bridge in the previous post (sorry about that). By the dam is another popular area though I've never fished the ice there - I've heard that you have to keep a heads up if you're in a shelter that isn't anchored as the wind may blow you over the spillway.
