Ice fishing at Gross and Carter Reservoirs?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about ice fishing at either Gross or Carter? I'm not catching many fish this year so I thought I would try fishing some water that is relatively close to home and also water that I have never fished before. I don't mean to limit my search to just these two body's of water but I do hear about people fishing them during the summer and was curious about their hard water potential. <'((<

I don't know about Carter, but I fish Gross quite a bit once it's froze. Buddy was up last weekend and it was still not froze. I think its a combination of the winds up there and the springs in the resevoir that keep it open. Once it does freeze, it's a very good place for numbers, but size is a different story. You can catch 50 macs a day there and none will be over 16 inches. I've had good days with a few nice fish in the 4 pound range however. I've seen some good fish taken but expect a ton of small fish. If you fish along the shore, the rainbows are getting better size to them. Two years ago I caught a 17 inch brookie out of there.

Hope that helps.
