    Report: Haven't been back. I read in the local newspaper the main gate will be locked until March 1. Supposedly they are fixing up the road and the campground. Here's a link for the current lake level.

    Report: All day on Saturday. Snow on the peaks, and cold. Fished in my duck hunting clothes all day and still was chilled. Four bass all day, all around 2.5 lbs, two no a jig and 2 on a carolina rig baby watermelon red brush hog. Fish were on points down to 25 t. I did catch the largest crappie I have ever seen on a L.C. crank bait and the L.C. picked up a eagle lake trout.

    Tips: Here is the low down, good road conditions, water is close to ull, at least much more so than last year, ramp is good and even though I have a Ranger 518DVX the road and ramp were ok. Due to the storms and last 2-3 weeks o cooler than usual weather I would wait another month beore hitting this lake. Also be prepared to spend a ew hours cleaning your rig ater the 14 mile dirt road ride, even with a cover.

    Report: Fished this weekend between the hours o 6:00 a.m. - 1:00 a.m. ishing with everything we had rom live worms, crankbait, spinner luers, jigs, pork rinds, and powerbait, but couldn't even get so much as a bite. Ater talking to other anglers there, it seems not one person had any luck. In act, I overheard gentleman at the boat launch say he would even be happy i someone else caught something. Deinitely a waste o time.

    Report: went to Indian valley(I should say Windy Valley) Been here abunch o times and the Indian winds always prevail. Very sunny with 20 to 25 mph winds at times. Had to stay in the coves to even lite a bowl. Caught a couple real deep on the stick-ups with a spoon. Don had a nice one on but orgot to set the hook.(had a little too much chrondo)I you ever want to see what hell looks like go here, It's pretty dry dirty windy, no water, no trees, no lie! Even though it was nov. I got burned to a crisp. Never coming back. Went to nearby Clear lake on the way home and caught a nice 4.6 lb. rom shore on a zipper worm.
