Blue Mesa Ice Fishing Report: the lake is capped; use caution!

Blue Mesa reservoir is completely capped!  It froze in several phases and ice thickness varies so use extreme caution!  There are some large pressure ridges in Cebolla, around Middle Bridge, West Elk, Soap Creek, and Sapinero so use caution!  From the Narrows/Elk Creek eastward has a solid blanket of several inches of snow.  From Cebolla west to the dam has patchy snow with 2-4″ of drifted snow in the patches and clear black ice in the open areas.  Trout fishing remains very good most days, especially along rocky shorelines.  We’ve only heard a few salmon reports and overall the kokanee salmon bite has been fair to slow.  If you can find them, the bite can be good!  Yellow perch has been about the same…if you can find them, the bite can be good!  Lake trout action has been good for smaller fish, but the bigger fish have been very finicky so far.  We have been working hard for all of our big fish bites and some days it all comes together!  Check out the growth on the lip of the big lake trout one of our clients landed, it’s a doozy!
