No ice-lock in December this year
Sure it is cold and your finger feel like popsicles, but it could be worse. Open water closes fast when winter temperatures stay below freezing for most of the day. Skim ice on good holding water will close down steelhead fishing until the sun burns off the ice and slush. When you look at the future forecast, the ice problems have been delayed until after Christmas so make the most of the opportunity. The video below from December 2019 at the Legion Hole makes today’s weather look balmy!
