Starvation - Opening up some more
I fished Starvation Thursday in my tube in Rabbit Gulch. I fished from 9:00 - 2:00 using fly tackle. The west end of Rabbit is still frozen over but to the east the ice is gone almost over to Indian Bay. You can drive to the end of the road and launch watercraft now. The ice has receded from the bank in that area. I used a slow sinking line with a size 8 bead head light green crystal bugger. I fished in 12' - 45' of water but all of the fish were hooked within the top 15' of the water column. I caught one walleye and three rainbows so the fishing was anything but fast but the weather was wonderful for February. It won't be long before the whole reservoir will be open water with these warm temperatures. The water temperature was 38 degrees and the visibility in the water was about 13'. The reservoir is 90% full and rising.

Nice fat bow and decent eye, thanks for sharing your report and pics with use. Looks like a decent day on the water. Were you fishing by yourself? Were those in your pic fishing from shore? Just wondering if others has similar success as you did.

Your welcome.

I was fishing by myself, all my friends are waiting for completely open water before they drive that far to fish. There were about a dozen folks that came and went during the day that were fishing from shore. I saw the one guy cleaning a couple of fish so they must have had some success. I caught two fish before 10:00 and then nothing until 1:00 and then caught the other two fish by 2:00. I guess I should have come in and taken a nap from 10 -1.Wink

When I was there last Thursday there was a little open water around the bridge pillars but that was it. It has been warm enough that I don't think it is going to be long and the whole reservoir will be open.

Thanks.

That's what I like about Starvation, you never know what species you might catch. I had caught walleye in the past but last year they started getting some size to them.
