Axiom - where do you catch decent size perch at on that lake? I grew up in Bear Lake. I fished it once with a buddy and his boss when we were in middle school (16yrs) ago. He took us right out from Beulah on a sled for perch. I was so dang cold that day I didn't fish much. I usually just go there for smelt. Pm welcome.

be nice...the way the wind won't chill out I won't hold my breath.

fingers crossed tho, nice thing is there are tons of lakes good to go nearby if I cruise down there and it is thin or open water I drive a little while and get on a number of lakes.

cant wait to get some lakers and whities myself.

For the money you can't beat it. I stayed there 2 weeks ago while up steelhead fishing. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

Sweet... Thanks for info. If it's just a one day deal of 37 like I seen last I looked it should just melt the snow and not kill the ice much.
