First destination check out ICR (Indian Creek Res). West on 88 South on 89. Took Airport Road off of 89 even though the sign said road closed. Got just past the airport and the road was covered with snow. I was able to see ICR and it was entirely free of ice. Got to get there. backtracked to Woodfords and took Diamond Valley road. Airport Road at Diamond Valley was closed. >:( My guess is that if the weather stays warm with no snow then one of these roads should be open next week. Off to Topaz.

Arrived Topaz around 10:30 decided to fish the California side South of the bug station. Fished with Kastmasters, Red Gulp and Green Gulp. Caught 2 17" holdover bows on the Red Gulp and farmed one on the Green. There were 6 or 7 other anglers there but I didn't see them catch any. The weather was slightly overcast calm and warm. While there I was treated to an air show. This twin engine flying boat kept landing and taking off from the lake. It was a beautiful plane but boy was it loud. It was a wonderful day.

Possible but I didn't see any markings on the plane. I believe it was a private plane.

Sounds like it was "RED HOT." The best day on Topaz for a while. :)

Hmmm, ICR no ice, maybe it won't be so long. Still guess June before Red or Caples. I understand you may be down to see us soon on this side of the hill. Looking forward to it, I am sure we can get you into a few brutes while you are here.

I wanted to get down there in the worse way. If I had 4WD and snow tires I might have given it a try. The dirt road from DV is closed because I suspect they don't want it torn up like it was last spring. Amador on Good Friday. It's been awhile sense I've paid to get skunked. 8-)
