Ice is off the main part of the lake, but many coves and boat ramps still have ice. The gun creek boat ramp is open.
More reports as the water warms and people begin to fish for them.
The bite is slow, but fish can be caught on brush piles in 10-15 feet of water and under bridges. The Gun Creek and the Sailboat harbor bridge are the best right now. The fish I caught yesterday came on 3/32 red/chartreuse jigs.
Kids enjoy the action take them fishing.
Rend lake is a GREAT catfish lake. I would argue the best in the state.
