Fish Blue Mesa on Friday. We went in at Old stevensen and took our ATV with tracks up the lake. Wasn't very confident on how thick the ice was so drilled numerous holes as we crossed a couple bays everything was 9 to 12 in. Fished five different places heading up towards Lake City Bridge. It was slow we only caught 4 Browns two keepers around 15 in. We wanted to fish the Elk Creek area for Kokanee but were told a guy had fallen through out in the middle the day before. There wasn't even one car in the Elk Creek Marina. The Browns we did catch came on droppers with mealworms and showpeg. We took a drive down the lake just to see what it look like and the Bay of chickens was complete open water, odd for the end of January.
