If you really want to get out and catch some fish through the ice, it can be done. You are likely going to have to travel a ways to do it, though. Up north in Okanogan Country there are some good opportunities. Patterson Lake is producing catches of perch, but there are many small ones this year. Anglers need to keep all they catch to thin them out on Patterson. Anglers targeting kokanee are getting limits of fish in the 11- to 12-inch class and some rainbow. Big perch are being caught at Curlew Lake. Lots of the perch are 11 to 12 inches on Curlew. You need a four-wheel drive rig to get into Leader Lake, but those who do are making good catches of rainbow and perch. I also hear that the rainbow fishing is pretty good at Green Lake. Anglers are probably going to encounter sloppy conditions on the ice, too, as we get a shot of snow and then it warms up to pool slush on top of the ice. Be sure it’s safe before you drag your gear out and set up. Better safe than sorry is the rule for ice anglers right now.
