|Ashlynn gets ready for the ice!|
Well, another thing that is hard for me to believe, this year on the day before Thanksgiving we found ourselves ice fishing on the Boulder Mountain! I think that is the earliest I have hit the ice! I checked out of work a little early and we ventured up to Posey Lake, where we found warm temperatues, 6 inches of solid ice, and the whole lake to ourselves! What a perfect day, warm enough for just a light sweater and a little fresh snow frozen to the ice to give you some good traction. We quickly rigged our poles and ventured out onto the ice.
It was a great day, everyone caught a few each, a nice variety of healthy rainbows and some beautiful brook trout. The coloring of the brookies amazes me when caught through the ice. The colors seem much more vibrant to me!
The weather is supposed to be very nice this holiday weekend. I know a lot of us don't think of fishing this time of year, as it is to cold or the fish won't be very active. Actually, November is always very good to me! The weather will be warm, and while there are not many lakes that have the ice to fish yet, check out some other local waters while the access is good! Lower Bowns, Otter Creek, Panguitch Lake, and Pine Lake...just to name a few...have been hot the last couple of weeks! What a better way to spend the family time this weekend. So get out there and be sure to let us know how you did! Keep the stories and photos coming!
