The ice is still good on both the south and north ends, there also is good ice out from joe bush and most of the west shore line, there is open water at the twin water at the twin creeks area and the rainbows have been staging there preparing for the spawn. Use caution on the ice especially at this time of year.
Mill meadow reservoir is covered in soft ice, the inlets have open water that is fishable we have fished a brown or black bugger for the best results.
The upper Fremont continues to fish well, there have been midge hatches at 11 am that have been bringing the fish up.

Calibaetis nymphs are a must for the Boulder Mountain area Lakes, one often hears that leech and or scud imitations are the way to go when fishing the boulders, however there are more baetis on the mountain then most high mountain lakes due largely to the geological formations of basalt, rather then the lime stone, of most alpine lakes, so when you hit the Boulders this summer, remember to have something more then just scuds and leeches in your fly boxes.

There is still good ice on the lake. there were three groups of fishers on the ice today, 2 groups just off the weed bed, and one group fishing in about 80 feet of water, the temperature at 10 am was 40 deg, the ice was still solid at that time with no slush, as the temperature warms it looks like there is anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of slush on top of the ice. at the twin creeks area there is some open water, there was a good number of fish stacked up at the inlet. ice appears to still average 10 to 12 inches most places on the lake.

Ice conditions remain decent over most of the lake, there is about a foot of snow up there around the edges of the lake, the temperature at the lake was 41 deg at 12:30 today, there were 10 groups of ice fishers on the ice, many of them had brought snowmobiles with them to the lake, all opted to not use them because of slush on the ice and the soft edges, they were doing well for perch and rainbows, there were no reports of lake trout from those we spoke to.....

The recent snow storm has closed the road access to Johnson valley reservoir, the inlets at mill meadow have frozen back up some making fishing the open water more difficult, fishing on the upper Fremont was pretty good, yesterday when we were there, we fished a prince nymph part time and a bugger part time, we caught fish on both. Flows are good up there, there where bald eagles fishing on part of the stream, that, coupled with the new fallen snow made for some beautiful scenes and fishing.
