Mornings have been cold and the days sunny and comfortable with little wind. Alas no snow.

Nighthawk and I arrived at the Jetspray compound shortly before0700 and we headed off to Topaz. We arrived at 0730. Temps in the low teens with the sun yet to hit the water. Within 2 minutes of the first cast we had a nice little bow to the shore. In over 4 hours more of fishing that was to be our only fish. Topaz remains very low. The water is slightly above freezing. We tried an new spot just east of the closed ramp in the county park. There were boats launching from the shore just down from us. Not sure how they were doing. We left at noon and on our way back to Dave's place we checked out Mitch Pond. Mitch is a local dunk about a mile frome dave's house. It had been stocked in late November then promptly became covered with ice. We found the ice still there. Tom, glad you could get some fishing in between tennis games. Dave, thanks for the ride. Nice fishing with you guys.

Looks like a fun trip but sorry to hear of the slow catching. Does it seem to pick up in the spring when the water warms a bit?

If we get some moisture it sure will Kevin, I hope the fish are strong enough to come around. The water is slowly coming into the lake, it is storage for the farmers/ranchers in the valley.......Jetspray

My boat has been at the mechanics since the first. It is killing me. The Ramp open yet? Glad to hear it is coming up slightly.

There is an area on the north east end of the lake, by the outlet, that they were launching smaller boats at. Biggest I saw was about 15 ft with outboard motor........Jetspray

I am going to give it a shot at the south end on Monday. I should be able to get the boat off the trailer.
