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.
