Lost Creek 1-12-2019 - Finally a good day!
Where: Lost Creek Reservoir
Fished the west side
When: 01-12-2019 8:15 AM - 12:00 PM

Fish Caught: ~23 total - all released.
Most were cutthroat in the 10" - 12" range, but we had more than a few 14", 15", 17", and even a 19". That one will bump my ice fish challenge trout. I yelled "SLOTBUSTER!" when that one came out of the hole, but ended up being up 3 inches too short. Fun fish.

We caught most on green glow paddle bugs tipped with worm, a white paddle bug tipped with with worm, and green glow tube jig.

Marked a lot of fish on the fish finder and had A LOT of bites. There was a lot of "fish on!" and then "fish off!" calls in the tent. Bites came from both a dead stick and on an active jigging rod.

Ice Condition: Solid Ice (5"). Started to get a little slushy on our way out.

Weather: Overcast at first then beautiful and sunny, ~15F - 25F, with little or no wind.

Lots of company on the ice. GREAT DAY and I had great company with my 15 YO son, and 10 YO son.

It felt good to have a great day at Lost Creek. The last few times I have been there I have been skunked or had a 1 fish day. Adding to the good fishing was the re-paved AND plowed road. The smooth ride was nice.

Outstanding photo of your son. You'll both treasure that one in the years ahead.

Thanks! He out fished me today. That is really what made it fun. We fished for almost 4 solid hours and he was on task the whole time. He caught about a dozen and had about another dozen on and then off.

Hopefully you have instilled in the young man an appreciation and love for active outdoor pursuits. In my own experience that has translated to the development of a young man who is on task, has attention to detail and is very responsible.

He's 30 now and he and his lovely wife are about to bless my wife and I with our first grandchild. Boy or girl, there's some fishing in their future. Probably LOTS of photos.

Great detailed report, it's always fun to fun with your kids, no matter how old they get. Sounds like you three had a great day at LC.

I did not realize that my son (pictured in the original post) caught a splake! First time I have seen one in real life. Pretty fish.
