got up to the lake around 7:30. still a tib bit nippy and the wind was blowing like a hooker on colfax. but you gotta do what you gotta do.
the lake is still iced over....pry 98% but still had a little open ice. maybe 15 yards of open ice and thats only on the eastside.
fish are hungry and i had action most of the day...
although my two partners (wife and my homie) had lil luck......Skunked.
I caught 6 bows......between 10 1/2 and 12 1/2.
i had luck on worms and eggs

Re: jefferson lake

Are the gates open or did you hike in. How thick is the ice? I was up there 2 weeks ago but it was locked.

larryT-

Were you able to drive all the way to the lake? (I'm not familiar enough with the area to know from your pic whether it was at the lake or on the road on the way in.) Thanks!

I arrived about 7:00pm on 5/22/06, ice off about done. It was 80% clear by 2:00pm Tuesday. It was windy, cold, but best day I've ever had. Never before caught more than 40 on a fly rod, and I can't even cast. Most just small rainbows, but 5 or 6 were day making fish. The ice blew into the ramp by late day, a little tough for returning boats. I'll get back there, but maybe not before fall. Please leave a couple in the water.
