Fishing report: Warm and rainy conditions have made lakes on our side of the state a bit of a mess. But if you’re willing to make a longer drive, Chesterfield Reservoir near Pocatello has a thick layer of ice and a reputation for producing big fish.
Ice fishing is the most unpredictable kind of angling there is. During my recent ice fishing class, I stressed how important it is to stay positive and keep working when the fish aren’t biting. Because sometimes, one fish can turn a tough day into a trip to remember.
