Ice fishing inland trout
12/13/14 @ 3:52 PM
Has anyone ice fished any of the little lakes for inland trout? I have a buddy that loves flyfishing trout in the summer but doesn't really ice fish. We were thinking of planning a day trip for trout through the ice but I have never fished trout in the winter before. We were going to fish a small inland lake rather than go out on the Great Lakes and worry about ice conditions. I don't need or want the names of any lakes you fish but am wondering what presentations work for trout and what depths you find trout in the winter? Pepperbox453

I've targeted rainbows and browns on Krohn's Lake in Kewaunee County as well as some of the lakes in Oneida County. Having a flasher helps because they will inhabit the entire water column. A standard teardrop jig with a waxie or kernel of corn is what I've used and had success with. I've also used small horizontal jigs like a gill pill. Good luck.
