I assume you mean angling? I do not think you can have a spear or bow out on the water until May 1.

Once it warms up, West Lost can have a good carp action in the shallows, and Ten Mile by Dalton can also be good.

Pleasant in the shallows by the public access has had a ton of carp in it in the spring in the past. Just down the road to the south of west lost.

For shore fishing, you may get some in the river below Orwell Dam.

Two years ago it was snowing on Bowfishing opener. Now that is something that I don't want to experience again this year.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.
