Conditions : Elkhead Reservoir - Ice at the shore is deteriorating quickly and conditions are currently unsafe for ice fishing. Prior to ice conditions becoming unsafe, the northern pike fishing was good with quality sized fish being caught. Anglers are encouraged to keep smallmouth bass and northern pike caught in the reservoir to help limit predation on largemouth bass and rainbow trout. Please contact the Elkhead/Yampa River State Park headquarters are 970-276-2061 for the latest conditions and additional information about the parks.
