Dick Zimmer, also known as the Macman, went to Polson Bay out in front of Kwatuknuk (4-7 inches of ice) and caught 2-14 lb mackinaws.

Lake Mary Ronan (sloppy on the ice; 250 yards out and  be careful; ice thickness at a guess is 4-6 inches) is giving up perch.

East Bay is frozen over solid with 3-4 inches and lots of snow on the ice.

Turtle Lake has 6″ of ice and is good for perch and some cutthroat trout were caught.

Echo Lake is good. Many varieties of fish are being caught.

Kicking Horse is open, and trout and little perch are being caught there.  Sunfish, Pike , brown and rainbow and largemouth bass are also there.

Dog Lake and Lonepine reservoirs are good for pike.

Ninepipes and Pablo Reservoir are still closed.  Call the Bison Range and complain!
