Early April. Cold but beautiful. This was 2018 with record ice thickness so Ice was still on the lake in early April
Fished with Black and Olive Wolly Buggers
Fishing was slow but the fish we caught were very nice.
We caught ten fish in two days.
Loved the sunset. We fished from the East shore along Highway 15 south of Beaverhead Campground. We just waded out and fished from shore but it was so cold that it would have been good to fish from a small watercraft. We just cast out as close to the ice as we could and stripped flies back. Used Dry lines and a five foot sink tip line. Both worked.
