Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Blue Mesa Reservoir - As of 11/30/2018, ice has been forming nicely along the banks of the reservoir especially in the Iola Basin. Reports of about 8 inches of ice in areas closer to shore. The ice does taper off so be careful if you are trying to get out away from the shorelines. Really good reports of trout are coming in lately but not much in terms of kokanee or lake trout. Ice anglers are catching trout off of chartreuse-colored jigs tipped with mealworms and gold minnow baits at about 10-15 feet of water. When the ice caps over sufficiently in the deeper areas of the lake, look to start using tube jigs in the white, pumpkin seed or even green colors to fish for the lake trout. It is still early ice season so extra caution is needed and the buddy system is vital while out there. Check in with a local tackle shop to get the latest ice conditions as they will change daily.
