Hebgen Lake Ice Fishing Report 12.27.17

The Christmas Holiday brought with it a much needed dumping of snow to the Hebgen Lake region.  This added snow however, has created slush on the lake, so fishing the lake has become a bit more challenging.  Ice conditions are holding at around 12 inches thick on the north shore of the lake.  Fishing remains good with mostly rainbow trout being caught, but brown trout and whitefish are occasionally iced as well.  Try fishing a couple of feet off the bottom in 10 to 20 feet of water using either 1 inch white tube jigs or tingler spoons tipped with maggots or meal worms.
