Any got ice?
« on: Dec 06, 2006, 11:55 AM »
 The smaller lakes were just starting to tighten up and now we are into a stall. Barley freezing at night and mid 30's in the day time.  Anyone got ice?

With the recent cold blast I will try to get out little this weekend. Maybe Spirit or Twin. Had some luck 2 weeks ago on Spirit, many small Perch and 1 trout on a tip up. Next weekend should be great after cold snap breaks and leaves nice weather. May try Round or Cocallola then.

BlueDuck. i live here in Post Falls, i was out 2 weeks ago on Spirit, it was great, I went to Black Sheep and grabbed some more tip-ups. I was supposed to go out this weekend with my in-laws and then some but they wussed out 'cause it was too cold. i may still try to go out Sunday for some out of house time. How was Coca? I was worried that the warm weather ruined the ice.

I was at Cocolalla yesterday.  8" of good solid ice and growing.   I also heard Hauser is close to being safe.  I have done well on Hauser at times in the past. I might give that one a try monday......

Caught all the little perch anyone could want at Spirit today, zero trout or Blueback. 8"-12+" of ice, low fishing pressure, only saw 3 others out today. gonna try somewhere else Sunday.

Caught a 6 fish limit of blueback on Lower Twin yesterday.  All about 10".   Usually good for perch too, but not yesterday.  Ill be out there again Sun. morning.

Blueduck, do you get on the ice at Lower Twin there at the Sportsmans access between the lakes? Is so, do you walk under the bridge? how is the ice there?

No I wouldn't try that. The water is moving under that bridge and Im sure the ice is thin.  I access Lower Twin back by the road by the Lightning Tavern. It goes by the golf course and dead ends at a boat ramp at the lake.  You need to park along the fence of the golf course.  Been getting limits (6 fish) of blueback there but can't buy a perch.  Always did good for them too on Lower Twin, but not this year. Good luck.

Murf if you didnt know there is a launch on lower but you end up having to park up by the driving range and walking down to the lake.

I was only aware of the launch between the lakes, i have never driven back in the village by the golf course.
I went to Cocalolla on Saturday, got one cut and a pail of perch. Took Sunday off from fishing, may try Lower Twin next weekend.

You dont go back in at the village you turn next to the lightning bar and drive down towards the lake.  Its kind of steep drive and if its ice you may not want to drive down there. but you can park up by the driving range and walk down

Par 3 golf corse road.  heading north on 41 it is the next left after you pass the turn off to the village.  Lightning bar is the little run down bar on the left.
