I've been having a grand time early ice fishing small mountain lakes for Brook Trout this past few weeks. Normally many of these lakes are challenging to reach but a paucity of snowfall has made them accessible. Today I decided to try out a small lake in the Okanogan NF for Brook and Cutthroat Trout. I didn't find any Cutties but the Brookies were on the feed.
I used the opportunity to demonstrate a few tactics I like to employ on the ice to maximize my odds with a second rod. I covered these tactics in the video below enjoy!
