It's been awhile since I posted. Went to Boyd on Saturday. The entire lake was frozen (2-1/2"). We did'nt bring an auger but luckily for us there was a small opening about the size of a bench table. We threw out some minnows and rite away we started catching a bunch of cutbows. All around 13" and a few 15 inchers. It was like fishing in an aquriam. You could see the large school come in some times. Action was pretty good all day. I'm not much of a trout guy but it sure was nice getting rid of the fever. Did'nt take any pics, their not worthy of the space. Another guy was out ice fishing and did pretty good for trout. He was using mealies on a small jig. Talked to the ranger and 1 group fishing by the boat dock caught a few crappie and perch. Really small she said.

Overall it's a good time to take them dusty reels out and give'em a work out.

Sounds like a good day. Where were you fishing, Heron Cove? were you fishing from shore? and minnows huh? how were you fishing the minnows, slip bobber? I drove by Boyd on Sat morning on my way to Wyo. fished Hatte, near Laramie. One little Perch. Should have stopped at Boyd it sounds like.

I was there earlier this week on Tuesday and it was completely iced over still. If there was any open water it was at the very north end of the lake that requires some walking since the road ends quite a ways before it. Didn't really check to the south of the marina inlet but there was only a tiny opening next to the pipe about 20 feet out from shore and only about 5 or 6 feet wide. With the warm weather all this week I dunno if the ice has melted anymore then it was then but it was still around 2 to 3 inches thick in the inlet. I guess that little hole is good to fish for the trout but if someone is already there you won't have any room to fish yourself.
