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.
Fishing has been slow to fair. Catching a good amount of the small stockers that where put in this spring but big fish have been slow from shore, better from a boat. Lake is extremely full so bank fishing can be hard. Bait: worms of bottom, power bait (rainbow, green) Flies: big streamers, Bite-me-buggers, hot heads, eggs Luers: Dardevil (red/white, gold), rapals (brown trout, pearch)
