There's always a point to fishing but the lack of shoal water from the roadside in is a little sparse. I prefer to wait until the ice is off at the north end.the one between merritt and kamloops next to highway 5A. it's the only one i know of. is there another one?
john, i don't quite follow you. are you saying there's no point trying to fish the open water in the middle of the lake? the north end seemed to be a little closer to icing off than the south iirc.
drove past stump lake yesterday. it's about 70% iced off. just the ends have ice. the bulk of the ice in the middle is gone. definitely possible to get a boat in from what i saw. [/QUO
what lake were you looking at??? i drove by stump today and its 98% iced over . the north end has a tiny open spot, about enough for 2 belly boats.
