Carl stressed that the color white was very important on the day he fished. The ice is 15 to 20 inches thick. Snow shoes will make it easier to access the reservoir from the road.

MILLSITE RESERVOIR & STATE PARK: (March 19) On Mar. 13, Tom Ogden fly fished from a kick boat for four hours. He used size 6 bead head olive leeches with a gold rib and size 6 wooly buggers on sinking line. Tom caught seven rainbow trout, four cutthroat trout, three splake, one tiger trout and one brown trout. Two of the rainbows were 11 to 12 inches in length, and most of the other fish were in the 14- to 16-inch range. Tom saw a number of shoreline anglers who were catching fish with bait.
SCOFIELD RESERVOIR: (March 29) The reservoir is still iced over, but it's slushy - especially around the shoreline. The extreme south end of the reservoir is ice free. State Park Manager Jonathan Hunt said that ice off happened around April 25 last year.
