Hebgen Lake welcomes hard water anglers into the first week of winter with a great opportunity to catch robust rainbow and brown trout.  Access for ice anglers along the north shore of Hebgen Lake is good.  As of Saturday, ice thickness was reported at 8 to 10 inches.  The dam was fishing well for 16 to 20 inch rainbow trout.  Rainbows were being caught 10 to 15 feet below the ice using 1 inch white tube jigs tipped with maggots.  The key to Ice fishing Hebgen is being mobile and right now with the lack of snow on the lake, that relatively easy to do.
