Hey Panfish,

I too am waiting for Crane falls to ice up, but it's gonna take a week of frigid single digits temps or more if we stay just under freezing for our daytime high temps... Man I hope it happens this year, crappie, gills, perch, bass and trout. All in one nice little body of water!!!

I would like to give CJ a try through the ice.  I love fishing there in the spring.

Hey Basser,

You'll love crane falls res. they have a special bass restriction: you can't keep any bass under 20" !!!

That is pretty cool, I might have to try it out for some big bass.

I might just head down there this weekend if the wind isn't too bad and let you know.

I have been waiting for a report of ice in that area.  I love fishing CJ Strike, but have never been there in the winter.  I need to go this year.

I'll be anxious to here your report.  I am planning on Cascade for Saturday, but if your report is favorable, I could change my mind.
Keep your gun powder dry and your fishing hooks wet.

There is ice, it was wet and couldn't find the fish.  Still had a good time and met a nice guy.

hey Mh,

I wonder if in cove arm the fish move out for the winter for the deeper water of the river? What do you think?...

It could be, I mainly fished crane falls, chatted with a guy down there for a while, he had a camera and we viewed quite a bit of holes numerous parts of the lake and couldn't find anything, possibly in the shallow weeds is what I was thinking.

One of the "Ice Fishing Guide" shows I recorded said gills are sometimes a hot evening bite right at the weed line or just above the weeds....

I would've thought w/ the crappie, trout, perch, bass and gills you guys would've found something... :-\
