Temperatures over 60 degrees gave me hope of catching something at the pond, so I put in about an hour this afternoon. Crappie will sometimes bite in cold water, and I hoped there may even be a few holdover trout from last spring's stocking. Didn't catch anything though.
Just a few nights ago it went down to 16 degrees and didn't rise above freezing all day which accounts for the ice off the deep end up to twenty feet in some places. Also, there were about 150 geese which limited the areas suitable for fly casting.
