Tips for the Ice-Out

Rich Culver describes the effects of the early-season “turnover” in southeast Alaskan lakes, but his advice on gear and techniques are applicable to any stillwater fishery in spring.  “As for fly lines, the ideal line for still water conditions is one that sinks slowly and places the fly one to three feet below the surface. I prefer a type 1, intermediate, and I fish it slowly with deliberate two-to-three inch strips while pausing briefly in between each strip.”
