I’ll be in Chamberlain this weekend, Feb 16-18. I’m bringing the walleye gear and I’ll be on the ice Sat and Sunday morning. Is there anything happening in the Chamberlain / Ft Thompson area? If anybody is interesting in meeting up, shoot me an email.

The report I got today, was: 20-40 guys in the basin. Not much happening. My reporter said he never had a bite,(mid afternoon to well after dark) and didnt see anyone around him catching anything. He said he never seen a flag go up.

What did you find Tyler?

I heard lots of boats, and slow fishing, for the most part.

Just returned fishing was decent around the dam. If you were not vertical you weren't catching fish. Lots of Pro's buzzing around the lake for tourney, talked with Gary Roach on the water so that made my day! People who were not fishing around the dam were not catching fish for the most part. Lots of guys trolling the rip-rap with raps ...mixed results. Every fish we caught was a 15-17 inch male. Major cold front today so we left if the cold continues it could get tough!!

It got cold enough and windy enough that they cancelled Day 1 of the PWT this morning.

I was heading out tomorrow night, to fish Friday on Sharpe and watch the final weigh in, but the weather report is making me think I'll reschedule to next week.

4 adults and 3 kids. We are going no matter what the weather. tongue.gif One of the group has fished out there for the last couple of years. We will prob. opt for shore fishing thursday. Looks like the wind will be 5-10. Cant be any worse than pool 4 in the middle of Dec. Any advice for dealing with the big temp. change??? Will give report saturday nite/ sunday when we return. Right now our plan is to start out shore fishing with crappie jigs. Other than that we will have the boats and work north of chamberlain for starters.

Hey guys, thanks for the posts and fishing updates. I am heading out there middle of next week. Sounds like the weather really is not going to warm up much according to the extended forcast. I am interested in seeing how the PWT goes this week, and where they find the best fishing. Sounds like the up by the dam has been the best so far, has anyone heard reports from the Crow Creek area? How about Kiowwa Flats? Or the White River area south of Chamberlain? Anyways, best of luck fishing to you guys!

Any reports from Easter trips? Weather kept me home, just wondering how those that made the trip did.

    • Early morning bucks playing around in the back yard.
    • Nice!  Congrats to you guys!
    • Well Day 2 was a complete bust. Warm temps and high winds along with a full moon kept any daytime movement to a minimum at best. Onto the next.   Day 3 we got plenty of rest the night before and we’re ready to hit hard. We started off on the bluff where Cole had got his cow and before we could even sit down we had 3 cows at 600 yards heading at us. We lost sight around 500 and figured they would move right up the draw around 200 yards away. They didn’t follow our plan and disappeared forever. Around 10am we had some animals above us. We could hear hooves on the bluffs but never saw them. We had lunch around noon and then started still hunt ridge to ridge. Around 130pm we were on a sharp drop of when son says ELK! We immediately hit the ground as they were only 100 yards almost straight below us on steep bluff. We belly crawled to the edge and looked into the timber. We could then only see one standing looking straight away from into the wind. I slide my rifle up in front of me and placed the cross hairs behind the shoulder. My first opportunity at a Bull ever. Cole had him in the binos when I pulled the trigger. Not needed. He dropped right in his tracks. Cole tackled me and both erupted in laughter. Both of us total rookies had filled our elk tags 3 days into the season. Not sure if we are good or just plain lucky but either way it’s been an unbelievable experience.  Now we had some serious work ahead of us.  We literally had to pack him out an almost straight up vertical cliff. I have one really bad knee...all those years of jumping out of airplanes in the military have taken a toll on my knees. We each grab a rear quarter and made the first trek out. When we got back I was hurting. Cole said sit down Dad. I got this!! He then hauled out both fronts and loins in one haul. Went back down for the head and did that too. As I sat and watched him I was overcome with emotion. How did I get so lucky in raising such a grateful and helpful young man!  He got back up to me and we both broke down in tears and hugged for about 15 mins. What an experience we’ve had. The effort and hard work you go through on these hunts is like nothing else. It’s been the best we could of asked for and then some. We took the morning off while my buddy went back out. We did some scouting this afternoon and think we found a herd for tomorrow to go after with him along with trying to fill our deer tags. More to come
    • Looks great. Whats with the tray of rabbit food there? 😅
    • Gold finches are still hanging on. All juveniles though. Actually had a red winged blackbird at my feeder yesterday. 
    • So, I guess the show has a new director, and she wasn’t a big fan of how the show would drag certain things on. That’s why she hung Gregory in the first episode. Apparently she’s the reason Rick will only have 2 more episodes left. She’s not even going to drag out his demise. I like it!
    • Last batch of the season. I picked the rest of the unripe jalapenos for poppers. It sure was a great year for the garden. Just have some carrots and beets left. 
    • Oh - so that's what happens when a pike hits the camera.  Neat.  Thanks for sharing.
    • Congrats and that sure is a beaut!
