Nice video and report, I enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.

Anybody that is in the "know" about Stillwater Fishing and has done any minimal amount of research on the topic, is aware of Clark Canyon Reservoir, it is no secret. I think it is as well known as Henry's, Crane Prairie, and Pyramid amongst others. Plus, tell me of a one lake that is NOT good after ice out? Simple math. But who is willing to go freeze their ass off like that for 10 fish over two days? Your true die hards only and to them CC is not a secret nor is "ice out".

Clark Canyon is has been on my bucket list for years, even before there was a such a thing as "hotspotting" or social media. I haven't had the opportunity to make the trip, yet. All this video has done for me is to make sure I hit in May or later when I don't need to worry about frost bite ;).

We were ice fishing for Burbot there many years ago. There were NO hot spots. I finally hooked a good fish after several hours; it broke-off at the hole. My buddy said: "Now you're going to tell us it was a huge fish, I suppose?" "Nope. I don't know how big it was, but when I looked down the hole all I could see was an eye . . ."

Hopefully, I get to fish it again next summer with a Nephew who usually has it dialed-in pretty good.

Ditto what Peach said. No secret. Been in many magazines over the years long before Ladin reported crazy 10 fish action in 3 days. Lol.
