Mountain Home was stocked this year with boatloads of stocker rainbows. So this lake will be fun for all. It is especially a good place to take the family. But not sure the ice is quite there yet. Attached is a photo taken from the north shore. Urge caution and test ice before venturing out.

Sadly have not made it there yet. County said its plowed and access i9s good. Been spending my fishing targets elsewhere for now. So many lakes so little time to ice them!!!

Anyone been out here lately? Let us know how things are going out there. I get spread pretty thin doing lake reports in our Valley and nearby lakes, so have not been out Mtn Home in a while. Updates appreciated.

I'll update my own question.

Fished it on Sunday. First time ever icing here. Moved around a couple times to find fish. Still intermittent when we did find them. Landed 4 nice bows, all quite fat. All were caught on the dead-sticks.
