Some info from the game and fish biologist about the fish kill this past weekend. Recent Gelatt Lake fish kill event: On Friday July 9th anglers at Gelatt Lake were catching fish. But by the morning of July 10th, hundreds of trout were lost due to low oxygen conditions. In addition, thousands of dead Fathead Minnows were observed. Oxygen most likely fell to lethal levels during the night due to plant respiration. While a good proportion of fish died from a lack of oxygen, it was not a total fish kill. There have been reports of fish still being caught since the event. Aerators were in operation and might have provided a zone of better oxygenated water for some fish to survive.

Hattie was about 40% open maybe a bit more. There are 3 separate open areas; from the the West end all the way to just past the point, some in the narrows and by the old boat ramp. You can find fishable open water if you are looking for it. Dam and main boat ramp are still locked in ice.
Twin Buttes opened up significantly yesterday in the wind. About 65% of the lake is now open including the boat ramp. There is still ice in the first bay and on the East end of the lake by the first outhouse. It was open water from the West end all the way past the boat ramp and all along the North shore. Should start to fish well with chironomid flies, and eggs but we’ll have to see how this goes this year.

Thanks to or partners at Two Dogs for gitting out and checking some lakes yesterday. Now is a great time to look at booking your early season trip. https://www.flystore.net/two-dogs-guide-service/ Lake was 90% still iced over. Road was not passable all the way to lake.
Lake was open from the boat ramp to the aerator around to the South. the rest of the lake was capped with ice. Be careful as warm weather can effect the ice quickly. Last thickness was 6″-8″ Fishing has been Good the last two weeks. Pinks and greens working the best as of late. Photos from 3/6
Thanks to Shawn for the report Here is a fishing report from 1/19/20 Ice was 13-14 inches thick and it was a slow day. We landed 4 nice fish but we typically land 6-12 fish a day at Alsop. We used everything from Powerbait to tubes to Kastmasters and Rapalas. All the fish came on Powerbait.
Fishing has been Fair Ice is between 3″-9″ with the thicker being where wind has pushed sheets on top of each other. some nice perch coming out this week. Pink and green jigs seem to be the trick tipping with wax worms. Hattie Derby is Jan 4th & 5th and tickets are available at the store now. $35 for adult, $5 for youth(under 14)
Twin Buttes has been fishing Good Ice 2.5″-6″, thickness was extremely varied from reports but those that found ice they were comfortable with did well. Jigging raps, and darters seemed to be the trick. As always conditions can change quick so use best judgment and be safe.
