Snow & Fishing

3 posts in this topic

Has the snow caused the fish to change depths? Was fishing outside of the weedlines & having pretty good luck before the snow and haven't had very good success since the snow. Not asking anyone to give out any secrets, but any ideas would be appreciated. Have fished as deep as 17 and haven't had much luck. Could they have gone shallow with the darker water?

You may want to go shallow. The snow on the ice will cut light penetration to the deeper weedlines, which could cause them to go dormant or die back a little quicker. The shallow weeds which should be getting better light penetration may stay green a little longer and still hold some fish.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
