Happy New Year everyone. I wish you all the best for 2023. Tumwater Canyon had opened for driving last Thursday, so I just had to run up to Fish Lake to see what was going on. Conditions were good on Highway 2, and I found the road into the lake plowed and in good shape. The parking area had not been completely cleared of snow, but I found a place to pull in where I wasn’t worried about getting stuck. There were some other rigs there and when I went out to look, I saw a couple of ice fishing tents and some other folks sitting on chairs over their drilled holes. I walked over to visit with some anglers and saw that they had a nice catch of perch. I was impressed with the size of them. I laid a couple beside a small propane tank and when I measured a tank when I got home I found that one perch was 8 inches long and the other 10 inches. The people I was talking to were packing up. They said the bite was great from 7 a.m. till just before 10. Then it died. They reminded me that the early morning bite is best.
