Cottonwood Lake is about 40% ice free...southwest and northwest portions are completely ice free...caught a few smaller trout (11 April) on spincast 1/4 oz March Browns. Water is shallow until you get a bit out.
Not much of a report, but you're welcome. Fished the Arkansas near the end of Main St in Buena Vista, but had no luck on spoons or spinners. Lot of risers though, but no takers! Arkansas was flowing pretty fast through there!
