Ice on! Terrific day of fishing at Dowdy

Wednesday was the first day of ice fishing season for the Loveland Fishing Club, and each and every angler who made the journey to Dowdy Lake caught a mixed bag of at least 20 rainbows and brown trout. Unfortunately, that was only Dave Boyle and Bill Prater -- but the two of them steamed up the ice, with pretty much nonstop action during the three-hour outing.

They found about 7 inches of solid ice, calm, snowy conditions - and not another angler on the lake. Here's Dave, with the first fish of the ice fishing season.

We could have wished for a better turnout, but next time we'll give more warning.  Just a great day to be out before the cold settles in again.

First ice fishing of the season! Wednesday, Dec. 13 at Dowdy

Short notice, but the cool gang is heading to Red Feather Lakes Wednesday to pester the first fish of the ice fishing season.  If you want to join us, meet at the K-Mart parking lot at 8 a.m.

Bring your ice cleats, as the lakes are reportedly very slick.

Ice fishing tournament again in 2017 at Boyd Lake

For the third straight year, Tightline Outdoors is hosting an "Ice Addiction Tournament at Boyd Lake.  It's be Jan. 7, and the entry fee will be $40, with more than $15K in prizes and cash to be given away.  Time and other details to come.

Last year they pre-drilled more than 400 holes in the ice just east of the jet ski ramp; few fish reported, but they had great prizes.  Here's a link to the Tightlines website:

Boyd is just the closest tournament to Loveland; others will be scattered throughout the season and throughout the state.  Here's a link to the schedule:
