Fished the trout opener, very disappointed. I saw one person catch a small bass, not a single trout. Curious how many trout were planted this year. Worst opener I have ever seen.
Silver Lake, Du Page County
41° - 45° F
Same up here at Banana. Actually got 3 huge one's right at 630. Then a couple of taps and a follow up. Nothing after 9. Saw about 7 fish caught between 1700 guys lol so I guess I shouldn't complain?
Got 1 trout at about 6:20, then nothing until we gave up at about 9:30. Saw one other guy catch a trout, other than that very quiet out there.
46° - 50° F
Trout opener this morning was out for 3 hours from sunrise til 10am no bites, lake was packed all around and full of boats only saw one carp jump and one guy to the right of me down the bank catch a small bass no other fish caught while I was there dissapointing not to see anyone catching trout.
31° - 35° F
Consistent 9" of ice (measured). Jig small spoons and soft plastics in 6 to 25 fow west of the island. A few light bumps on the spoon in 20 fow but no fish.
Any news on ice report..
Thanks for the reports
What's the location of silver lake?
