Heading up to Taylor next week and was wondering if anyone had been there lately and how was the slush and snow and the road conditions. Any fishing tips would be appreciated as well. Going to be targeting Lakers. Thanks in advance.

Not a lot of help but i was there on the 16th. At that time there wasn't much slush but there was easily a foot and a half of snow on top of the ice. The snow on the boat ramp area was miserable, got the snow mobile stuck 6+ times. Couldn't get an accurate measurement of the snow on the hill cause I was bottoming out if you know what I mean. Fishing was so so. Most of what we caught was all the way at the bottom, like reeling in the slack after hitting bottom and the fish already biting. white tube jigs tipped with sucker.

Was unable to make it up to Taylor as there were avalanche slides that closed the road. I am sure the wind was howling up there as well. Decided to stay put at Blue. Was a disappointing trip do to the weather. Fish were slow but is expected this time of year. Looked forward to next year.

Slush was not to bad when I left about 0900 yesterday morning. You have 8 to 24 inches of hard packed snow then 22-24 inches of ice. We fished Elk Creek because the wind was really bad and Middle Bridge would have been a real (%$&!%@#$%.
