I didnt know quincy was opening tommorrow. I usually take my fly rod and toss some wooly buggers at ice out. I'm not working on wednesday so I think I'll go and give it a try. Does anyone know If the lake is completely ice free?
I called out to aurora res. to get info on quincy, they confirmed what altitude said, some open water on the north side...mabye I'll take my flyrod and my ice rod...that should cover all situations...LOL
i am looking at it right now it is almost all ice. the only open water i can see is on the north side at the little tower they got there. but it looks like the ice by the ramp and dock is about to open up probly today or tomarrow. but even if the lake is mostly ice i wouldn't trust it any day of the year. but to anyone going out there good luck. if i was going to go out there i would go with spinning if that matters to anyone. GOOD LUCK
i get out of school at like 10:30 on thuursday, and u know where im going, by far my favorite lake close to home.... toss kastys, blue foxes, ur basic spinners and u can catch trout all day, i like fishing off the dam...im gonna check on the ice tomorrow and see if i can get my belly boat out thursday
I cruised by quincy today around 11:30, there were probably 20 folks fishing, mostly off the damn. There is quite a bit of open water starting from where the pipe comes in, clear down to the little tower on the damn. Plenty of room to fish. I talked to a few guys and was surprised to hear not many fish being caught. One guy said he caught a few this morning on his flyrod just to the east of the boat ramp. The sign says no float tubes allowed at this time. I think its ok to use waders although I didnt see anyone wading. I think I'll try it for a spell on THURSDAY morning.
my girlfriend was talking about heading out there with her mom tomorrow, if ya see her mustang and your catching and she's not, give her some tips could ya.. she'll remember you from the arsenal meeting...
yea my girlfriend didn't make it out there either, she wants to go sunday, i told her she was crazy, i'm gonna go hit some ice somewhere. if anyone see's her, her name is shanee(pronounced shay-knee) say hi to her.
