Sunday, Feb 25 2024
The reservoir elevation is currently 6,026 feet. Fishable ice extends down to the confluence in Wyoming (about 6 inches thick). Ice has formed in the main lake down to Pipeline, but it is thin with patchy open water. Ice is highly variable this year, so make sure you're frequently checking thickness as you move around.Lake trout: Recent fishing reports indicate lake trout fishing success has been slow. Small lake trout are being caught through the ice and in the open water while trolling, casting and vertically jigging. If ice fishing, look for fish along the main channel in depths of 50-70 feet. Lake trout are commonly observed on the bottom, but will also be suspended in the water column, from 25-40 feet. Suspended fish are typically the most aggressive, too. Good lures to use include jigging spoons, rap baits (like jigging Rapalas or Tikka minnows), and jigs in 1/4- to 1/2-ounce weight or 3-4 inches in size. Good colors include white, glow and chartreuse. Tip the lures with a small amount of bait, like sucker or chub meat. In the open water, trolling crankbaits close to the surface or casting jigs and swim baits near shore can be productive. Watch the fishfinder for schools of fish holding in deeper water (50-60 feet) as well. Good lures to jig include tube jigs and curly tail grubs rigged on 1/4- to 1/2-ounce jigheads in white, glow, chartreuse and shad. Tip lures with bait. Trolling can be effective as well, using small spoons, dodger/squids, and even crankbaits in the colors mentioned above. If you're not marking fish, move, and if you're not catching marked fish, change your presentation. This is a great time to target lake trout, specifically small ones that are overabundant and consume kokanee salmon. Please help the resource by harvesting some of the overabundant lake trout under 25 inches. This size class of fish makes exceptional table fare.
