Conditions : PANGUITCH LAKE: Good The ice is eight to ten inches thick with some snow and slush on top. Anglers are finding the best success by fishing in water that's at least 15 to 20 feet deep (and even as deep as 40 feet). Cutthroat trout are really active right now and can be found throughout the water column at those depths. Remember that fish are very sensitive to increased fishing pressure during the winter, so the dense groups of anglers ringing the shallows often push active fish out to deeper water or to less-accessible areas, like the west end. Tipping jigs with shrimp or cut bait (chubs, suckers, anchovies or minnows) is producing the best success. A fish finder can really help you see individual fish as they come through and adjust your depth. Don't feel obligated to use small tackle either, as these cutthroat are still hitting larger jigs. If you'd prefer to catch some rainbows to take home, fish with smaller jigs and tip them with standard baits (mealworms, wax worms, nightcrawlers or PowerBait).
