My son and I went to Georgetown for a few hours. We caught about 18-20
fish. Most were 10-12 inches, mostly rainbows with a few browns mixed in.
If you want to take a young one to catch fish, this is a good choice. Just
use a spring bobber as the bite is pretty light. Ice is over a foot thick.

coldwater-- just a suggestion if you want to take your kids I would suggest taking them to dowdy or bellaire at red feathers lake area. Its a little longer drive but its less windy on average and it sure beats fighting the skier traffic. Good luck!

I was fishing in about 7 ft of water on the far side of the lake (south?).
It's across the lake from where they race the jeeps, on the end of the
lake where the dam is. Tip your jigs with mealworms......

I would go up there a first light if possible. On the way back the traffic
going West was horrible. Also, the wind does kick up, so be prepared.
The ice is slick......no snow on top..... you should probably use cleats if
you can. Good Luck
