As of tonight, the channel is open from the bridge to the dam. The boat landings are still locked up but didn't look like it was gonna last much longer. Looks like ice fishing season is finally over and it's time to break out the long poles

Been a couple of weeks since I've visited Mead.  Wasn't sure what to expect with the warm weather.  Figured shore ice would be gone......pleasantly surprised to see the great ice conditions.  No I did not drive on but you could see the tracks where someone did since saturdays snowfall.  Braver than me.  Went off south boat landing up towards island, 9 feet of water.  2 holes fished side by side in my one man Fishtrap.  Sun made it warm enough to not turn heater on.  No one else on lake that I could see.  11ish til 2, not a bunch of fish on vex screen, most right down on bottom.  Perch vertical jig with fluorescent backside with waxworm did the best.  Tried Lindy Darter with rattle to get them to come in...not sure if it helped or hurt.  One 10 inch crappie  and a 9 inch perch was all I kept, didn't set the world on fire but good to get out.  Am thinking at another two weeks of fishable ice here unless weather really warms up.  No garbage/litter at landing...bravo fellow fishermen!!  16 inches of ice off the channel where I fished, am sure less in channel but didn't check.

One hole wonder at mead lake today off south boat landing.  20 " ice, most people out driving vehicles; walked the short distance myself.  Little crappies and bluegills plus shiners higher up in water column.  Plastic and waxworms, both vertical and horizontal jigs, bite very light, almost undetectable even with spring bobbers.  Getting out of wind helped too.  Nothing big enough to keep, but just good to catch something.  One fellow with tipdowns and minnows had a couple of nice 11/12" crappies.  Fished 2ish to 6, took the time to talk to the guys fishing near me, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Most fish/bites were in 13 feet of water depth, coming through between 5 to 10 feet down, not off bottom.   Glad I went.

Looking to try the mead with my five year old. Looking for lots of numbers. Not concerned with size. Just want him to have fun. Any advice would be appreciated.

This lake has been known for nonstop small panfish for 15 years plus with the exception of a 10” crappie ever so often our experience. Caught 2 eyes through the ice few years ago 17 1/2” and 18”

Me and a buddy fished mead yesterday we caught a bazillion gills crappies and a couple perch out of the bazillion maybe 4 or 5 were big enough to keep MAYBE we let everything swim,question is there a population of panfish worth fishing for with any size or are they all stunted?there are a ton of shacks out there i would think catching 5 inch fish would get old real quick i did see two different amish buggys out there hopefully they keep every little fish they catch like they do everywhere else.......any pointers on some decent pannys here would be ok with me tight lines guys
