Scoflield 12/06
    
Fuzzy and I desided we'd hookup and wander around Scoflield this morning. We arrived at 9am. Cold! Wind! Snow (a white out at one point)! I took the lead with the spud bar in hand. Most places the ice was 2"-2.5".
Marked a few fish, capped far less. The bite was SLOW at best. I only capped a single, Ron lost a nice one at the hole and capped one. Tubes tipped with Minnow and mudbugs meat. We pulled out around 1.30pm.

Yeah We were pretty surprised at the lack of bite too. We fished in areas with water depth from 9' to 27'. all activity took place in areas with depths from 16'-27'.

yeah the bite was slow at best.. and i did not see many fish on the finder yestrday at all..
it was to cold to do much up there yesterday as well.. with the wind hitting 25 to 30 mph all day and with it snowing on top of that made it a little tuff..
and as coldfooter said i got a nice one to the hole on minnow and he got off right as i went to bring him out...
fishing for a while more and cought one on a smoke blue 1" tube tipped with do-dad meat.. and thats it other than some smal bites on minnows that was the action yesterday fishing...
now driveing home was much more exciting.. 5" of new snow on top of alredy icey roads.. yeahooo all the way acrossed fairview canyon..

do you think there will be 5 or 6 inches of ice by the weekend.

if i was going to be there this weekend (and i'm not !) first i would look and see how much snow was on it.. it might do the same thing huntington did and get to much snow on top that slush starts forming..

but i'm sure the ice will be thicker by the weekend.. the temp's have been staying in the teens in the day time there so even with the sun out it's still cold..

It's hard to tell how much ice there might be by Saturday. As was mentioned, snow fell. And it does act as an insulating blanket, where the temp below tends to hover just below freezing. But with the super cold temps we've had, that will surely transmit through and effect ice growth. Just have to hope it's enough to make it safe. That's why slush will stay under snow for a long period of time - it's insulated from the bitter cold by the snow cover. Bummer, huh?
