CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. No open water. Ice thickness running 12 to 21 inches. Ice close to shore is thinner and softer with thicker and harder ice in deeper water. Always be careful around rocks. Caution always advised in Spring. Early on early off is a good policy. Water clarity poor on points West. Melting snow into lake creates clarity issues. No problems seen for this weekend and probably next weekend. It's been a while since we had a full March of hard water fishing. Bring the grill for the on ice Springtime barbecue.
WATER FLOW: IN 40.6 CFS OUT: 60.4 CFS

TROUT:VERY GOOD: Action is consistent all over the lake. Cross Creek to Suckers Cove fishing very well but be very careful of ice conditions. Typically things get softer faster there. Stocker action strong at North Shore but you can see them almost anywhere now as the Winter stocking is rapped up. Large tube jigs, Trout Traps and Krystal Lazers hitting the best, always tipped with something. You can use meal worms, wax worms, salmon eggs, piece of night crawler, even small shrimp to entice on a jig but definitely use something.
KOKANEE SALMON: EXCELLENT: Always amazed at how anglers create a crowd. Cross Creek sees it early in the Season like its the only place holding fish and now Coyote Ridge to Duck Island looks like the only game in town for salmon. Thing is, it's not. Big crowd out there last weekend. But you can do just as well out past Deer Island and the limit pic above was out from North Shore Marina. That's 3 limits and two small Trout. That looks like an awesome time. They caught them all on the same bait. Gold Swedish Pimple with orange tape. But that does not mean that's what they will hit tomorrow. The bite was late last week with things really turning on after 1:30PM. But like the baits the times can change. One thing is for sure the time on the ice will be drawing to a close soon so if you are inclined better get salmon fishing. Our guide trips have done very well of late, just a few dates left. And you never know you might get a real whopper like Drew in pic below.
NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR: Sometimes you would think these fish middle name is Kokanee as finicky as they have been. They are there but very leery. We are sold out of waterdogs for the season. Suckers in stock. Smaller fish being caught but the trophies are elusive. They are visible but hard to catch. Not much change here.
SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park. Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

So if its not there on Thursday morning it will show up by Friday. We appreciate all the support and acknowledge that many of you won't miss a week. Many Thanks. Oh and by the way there may not always be a fish pic.
