Went to Elevenmile Res. this afternoon. Wind was blowing 1000 miles an hour. Res. is about 70% open water. Some ice by inlet, boat ramp area, Withcer's Cove and all ice by the dam. Tried fishing Howbert Point and Sucker Cove with Long Cast Rapala, had one follow (rainbow?) the lure. Then tried South Platte by the bridge, had one good hit and missed the fish. Looked like I was the only one to be out in that awful wind. Hopefully Spinney Mt. Res. won't be far behind Elevenmile.
