    I'm thinking of making the drive to Coffeepot on Friday. Can anyone tell me what the ice situation is out there?

    Good plan to get there early in the season before the rattlers warm up

    I told you man, I know where some dens are. I even know the exact entrance to one. It usually looks about like that pic when you kneel down and shine your light in the hole. The place with the six foot plus snakes is right along a fantastic fly fishing stream. You carry a rod in one hand, a snake catcher in the other.

    Hearing 10 to 12 rattlesnakes go off at the same time... music to my ears.

    I just love snakes, especially poisonous ones. Get me around a hornets nest, and I'm like a screaming little girl. Well, not that bad... but darn near.

    Fished Sprague today. Its still ice in the middle but open on the east and west ends. I would assume Coffepot is still covered.

    I did drive out Friday to look. Lake is very low and the bay at the launch was still mostly iced over. Looked like the main lake was clear. All the ice should be gone by tomorrow if not already.

    Sprague was low, 33 degrees, still much ice, and fish didn't seem to be biting. Tried all the usual stuff. Shoulda went to Rock,I guess.

    With all of this lowland runoff I'm sure Rock would be really murky. Lots of mud from the inlet and even though it's a good sized lake it still unfortunately gets screwed up.
    We have to be really close on our other area lakes. Liberty for ice out browns might be worth a look.
    I just came back to Spokane from Billings yesterday and most everything moving was blown out.

    Fished it today. Water is the lowest Ive seen in 20 years. Dude almost got stuck at the launch in his wifes minivan due to low water. 34 degrees. Quiet a few people. Looked like a big motorcoach rig of 206ers? Had a big trophy on the dash?
