  • Lake Mary Ronan - 14" of ice. Perch fishing has been good. You will need to get deep, around 30' down.
  • Smith Lake - 12" of ice. Reports of good pike action. Lots of fish between 18"-24". Best luck with jigging spoons and dead bait.
  • Rogers Lake - 10+" of ice. However, the bite is extremely slow.
  • Blanchard Lake - 12" of ice. Hearing about a few pike being caught using tip ups. Also, some reports of crappie using small tungsten jigs or Gitzits.
  • Loon Lake (Ferndale) - 6" of ice. A really good rainbow bite this last week. Also a few perch being caught as well in 20' of water.
  • Lower Thompson - 8" of ice. Slow salmon bite, but a good pike bite in deeper water. Try using tip-ups for the best chance.
  • McGregor Lake - 8" of ice. Still a few lakers being caught in morning around 60'-80' down. Try setting a JawJacker using small tungsten jig for those lakers.
  • Ashley Lake - 7" of ice. There has been a really good salmon bite around 50' down. Mostly using Hali Jigs off the West shore.
  • Bitterroot Lake - 8" of ice. People have been finding some salmon on the South end in deep water. Use a heavy glow weight and hooks with maggots or corn to get down to depth.
