Rating - Fair   

Saturday, Mar 16 2019
Hot The ice is 15 to 18 inches thick. Additional snow in the area this week is making access difficult for ATVs and even snowmobiles. Fishing is fast for perch and small trout just outside the weeds in 12-20 feet of water. Use small jigs, ice flies or jigging spoons tipped with mealworms, night crawlers or perch meat. Perch are typically staying within a couple feet of the bottom and trout can be found on the bottom or suspended. If you want to catch a lot of perch, focus on the north and south ends of the lake. The sections through the middle have fewer perch, due to a more narrow weed line. Trout fishing has also been slower lately between Lakeside and Bowery. To increase your trout catch and average size, move out to 20-40 feet and increase your jig size. You can also catch rainbows and splake suspended 20-40 feet down over deeper water. An occasional kokanee salmon is also picked up. For lake trout, head out to deeper water (60-100 feet) and fish large tube jigs tipped with cut bait (chub, sucker or perch) on the bottom. A good fish finder is essential to spot lake trout and react to their behavior. A heavy dose of patience is also required. It's typical to catch several pups and hook an occasional large lake trout. It's also common to see a lot of fish swim by and look without biting. Before you head to the reservoir, call the Fish Lake Lodge at 435-638-1000 to check on current conditions and get up-to-date fishing reports. (03-09-19)
