Lots of folks ice fishing on Evergreen Lake this past week. I was below the dam during the afternoon of Christmas eve fly-fishing the spillway and pulled out 2 browns and 2 rainbows within about a half hour. I was stripping a wire wrapped midge that I tied similar to the "Packer midge" below but this one had a red glass bead head.

The browns were only about 10" and the rainbows were smaller. One rainbow was very plump for it's size and was a little funny looking. Sorry no pics. I am gonna try it again for a bit in the afternoon on New Years Eve. I like to get at least one more fish before the end of the year.

Fish in a barrel. Caught & released at least 20 @ Jefferson Lake today. Too windy for a fly rod so I was forced to use spin cast & a bubble. Most were between 12 & 14" but had a few bigger.
Wooly buggers for all of them in about 3-1/2 hours. Left the bait fishers scratching their heads (again).

The lake is very, very low right now and although there was still a good deal of snow (12 foot drifts in some areas) on the south shore from winter winds, the lake will not fill this year. Ranger said it was recently stocked too. Very crowded until storms threatened at about noon and there was a mass exodus. Best action was in the small bay to the east of the boat ramp.
