Boat Ramp Hours 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Marinas Closed

The lake is finally free of ice and open to boating. Elk Creek is open and Lake Fork is supposed to open today. Boat ramp hours are from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  On April 21st they are supposed to change to 6 a.m. to 8 p.m!  Fishing is excellent for ranibow trout and brown trout via trolling, casting, and jigging a variety of lures, but jerk baits, rapalas, maribou jigs, kastmasters, and a variety of other baits are working!  We don’t have any reports for any other species, but will update as we get to spend some time on the water!  As always with this time of year, if you are blessed with a trophy fish of any species, consider catch and release!  This is a great time of year to catch the biggest fish of your life, but it is important that we practice catch and release on big fish in order to preserve the opportunity for ourselves and future generations to have a shot at these fish as well.  Lake trout can live to be 60 years old, which if cared for properly can provide many memories for many different people! I have witnessed this first hand on many occasions and it is incredible how well it works if the fish are cared for properly.  Good luck and God bless!
