Happy New Year! It has been busy up here over the holidays, with lots of people out trying their hand at ice fishing. There have been some really cold temperatures at night, but the daytimes were spectacular as it warmed right up, with clear blue skies, lots of sun and no wind. We saw -31C one morning!!! Cold snap is forecasted to break, and some nice weather is on its way.
The fishing reports have been mixed, some days the trout were really 'on', while other days they just didn't want to bite. Anglers who were mobile and move to different areas in the lake, found fish that were willing biters due to the lack of pressure, had good success. The usual 5 -7 feet of water off weed patches are the best areas. Worms or small shrimp pieces are the best producers. Lots of scuds are coming up through the holes when drilled near or in the weed beds, so there are lots of food for them to gorge on this winter.Follow us on Facebook please
