I went out in the float tube briefly before the high winds pushed me off the lake. I spent the rest of the time between wind storms fishing from shore. There wasn't much going on. I had some light hits and managed to hook one cutthroat that escaped before I brought him to hand. The weather was spectacularly entertaining to watch. Storms were moving in on both sides of the lake. After I had my fill of the plains lakes I went up to check on ice out. It is not quite here yet. I took a few casts in the high country but didn't spot any working fish or activity. The creek up high was beautiful with the high snow banks. They still had cave structures formed over the water in places.
