I drive by this lake every day, twice per day, I have seen people out off the main point several times recently & heard/seen good reports as far as ice conditions & fishing.

Have fished the lake twice in the last two weeks. A lot of 7 or 8 up to 10 inch stocker RBs with a few larger ones, almost any where in the lake in 10 to20 ft. of water.

Fished this morning, about 9" all over the place except for the inlet where it's open water full of geese. Pink tube jigs were the key, even got this chunk on the ice, back in the water for the next guy to catch!

All trout!!! Where are the perch? Eyes? Smallies? Parked at Pelican... went straight to the middle... then towards the dam. Worked our way back to the lot.

Are there shad in BC? Had schools of something come in and out on my screen. Trout went from 7" to one that was any 16-17"?

My last trip out there resulted in one 16" bow and several smaller ones less than 10". I did catch one keeper sized perch and the school stayed around the hole for a short while but I could not get them to hit anything that I tried. I released the perch, it was 8 or 9 inches. Never did see the school again.

Ice east of the dock was 8 inches thick, clear and strong with 2 inches of snow on top. Caught 5 small stocker rainbows this morning .... nothing of any size.
