The cold isn't an issue for me, I just want to get up there earlier this year for a better chance at the tagged fish.

    The west side banking has brought in the taggers around the opener. The lake should fill up a little this week as we have had some snow and warmer temps. Launching at the ramp would be tough for me and my 19' 6" jetboat but a smaller aluminum or a yak would be able to do it pretty easy........Jetspray

    I agree with Kevin. Wish you had more fish but the pics are beautiful. It actually looks warmer than our Pyramid trip. Thanks for sharing.

    Cold is only relative to warmth, the truck provides that. With snow on the shoreline you don't wanna get too close to the lake, so it was a small walk down. We will have more chances, I just need my Douglas County sticker for the park on the truck. No rangers were available, must have been inside or something. I hope to make a couple more stabs at the shoreline soon.........Jetspray

    Topaz - East Shore 01/09/13

    Met with Dave in the Ranchos and headed to Topaz to give the east shore a try. Arrived at 0800 to temps in the mid to upper teens, light winds, a heavy ice fog and 3 inches of snow. We fished using green Gulp and managed only one stocker to the shore. At 1045 the wind started blowing heavy from the south. That was our cue to go. It was a fun day while it lasted. The East side is always pretty. Thanks for the trip Dave.
