Off of windy point.  Ice is I would say 4-5 inches have seen some ATV on lake but with warmer temps not sure if that is advised.  

Water that was 22 feet last year is about 17-18 feet this year.  

Kind of learning the lake all over again.  Did not have much luck yesterday afternoon have not heard much good so far this season on the lake.

Fished Saturday and was surprised to see the water levels about 10 feet below normal.  Apparently they have to fix the dam again.  Last year's flooding, and the boats that went through the dam, damaged the dam again and it needs to be fixed.  The permit pulled is through 2019.  Algae bloom happening on main lake.  We caught about 8 perch, 3 gills, 2 little smallmouth, and about 3-4 cats.  One cat was about 10 pounds.  The others small.  Lunch at the arbutus sports bar was good.  Fishing not so much.  If I remember correctly from the last water draw down, it took the fish a while to adjust but once they did, we had some of the most amazing fishing we've ever had on this lake.  

Good luck out there and be safe.  Lots of rocks.

I didn't know there were any sheephead in lake arbutus. I have fished  there for over 50 years and never caught one or heard of one caught. Not saying there arn't any I just never heard of them there. For crap Head north to where East fork comes in and fish weed edges might be A good place to start.  Good Luck
