Diamond 100% Ice Free, Booting Limits

(DIAMOND LAKE RESORT PRESS RELEASE)

Diamond Lake is 100 percent ice free, and the weatherman is calling for nice weather through this weekend.

The Forest Service says it will likely open the north end of Diamond Lake Campground beginning this weekend.

Now is the time to catch the trout Diamond Lake is famous for.  Most trout being caught are 13 to 15 inches in length, perfect for the frying pan. Many anglers are connecting with trout in the 18- to 20-inch class.

The water is cold, 45 degrees, and the best offerings have been Power Bait in rainbow, chartreuse, and orange colors plunked off the bottom with a sliding sinker and 18 inches leader.

Trolling Needlefish and other small lures have produced fish.  Trolling will only get better as the water warms.

A quarter million trout are waiting for anglers as Diamond Lake starts its fourth season following the 2006 treatment to rid it of trash fish.
