Was just informed by winnebago County forest preserve that four lakes will be stocking trout tomorrow and will be closed to fishing until the trout opener on Saturday
4” of clear ice directly behind parking lot. Water is clear. I fished about an hour. Caught one dink bluegill and a bass about 2” long. Saw a nicer gill suspended half way between ice and vegetation below but could not entice it to bite.
Has anyone seen if there was any kind of ice here yet?
Good 4-5 in of ice. Can only get tiny dinky bluegill to bite.
