Dec 27, 2010 The lake has a thin layer of ice forming in most areas from our snow from the last few days.  It is still NOT thick enough for ice fishing! Stop by the store and say hello, and let us know how you do.

Lot's of snow for snow play.

Dec 22, 2010

Lake level is at 62% .

Drove up  the east side of the lake as far as Mallard cove on  Dec 22nd there is still a significant amount of open water on the lake. Coot Bay and Mallard Cove are the easiest access points, will have to walk through snow to get to the lake.  Do not have a recent fishing report. However at the beginning of the month rainbow power bait and night crawlers were working well.

 Lot's of snow for snow play.

 We have Fishing and Hunting licenses and tags for 2011.

When trolling, we have experienced the best results, if we tie our lures directly to the line, then about 150 feet behind the boat; trolling at a speed of 1.5 to 1.9 MPH.  We used a down-rigger to get the lures to the depth that we wanted; but split shot can be used equally as well.
