My two daughters and I went to icehouse last Thursday and caught 12 rainbows in about three hours. Should of had limit but missed about five bites. Went to icehouse on Tuesday with wife and three kids and caught about twenty . A real fun day on a beautiful lake.

Went up yesterday to the back side of the lake, took from 10:30am to 3:30 to limit.
It was a slow bite but still there, decent sized fish.
I was greatful for the fish caught as I was concerned about the moon and it was windy.

My handy-dandy Crystal Basin Recreation Area handout says the following.......

Ice House CG opens 5/15 to 10/15

Northwind CG opens 5/15 to 10/1

Strawberry Point CG opens 6/1 to 10/1

Looks like all of the Union Valley campgrounds open 5/25

Hope this helps. :)

It was at both of those lakes last week. Got skunked at both of them.

Sorry to hear that Fishinjib, I always catch something at Ice House. This past Wednesday I tried a little different approach and caught larger hold overs.
I also had some pretty old power eggs, so put some Pro-Cure on them. I think it helped.

I would be happy to share if you're interested.

Nice job! Keep doing what you have been and you will land good size trout. Where did you get your limit at? Loon or ice? I've always had bad luck at loon but ice house on the other hand is one of my favorite spots.

Look for deeper water. I used a 1 ounce egg sinker slide system last week to get as far out as possible. All of my limit were larger than most of the dinks normally caught at Ice House. All but 1 were holdovers I think.

I actually took one home for dinner (about 17" w/ nice shoulders) and I very seldom do that. DELICIOUS!!!

I fished the far side of the dam a couple weeks ago. I want to try it again w/ the heavier weight. I just have a gut feeling that there might be some big ones in there.
