Be sure to CLEAN, DRAIN & DRY all equipment that comes in contact with the water to keep from spreading them to another lake.

Trout Fair-Good 0.75-1.5 lbs Henry was mostly frozen over this morning (March 6), but there was a little open water around the edge.  I would expect Henry to open up this weekend, due to warm temperatures coming our way.  Latest trout stocking occurred at Lake Henry the week of Feb. 26.  Anglers should be able to catch fish using powerbait, jigs, spinners, spoons, and worms.
Crappie Slow 0.33-1 lb Using jigs near the bottom.

General Comments
Most boat ramps were iced-up the morning of March 6, except for the Marina boat ramp.  A large area of open water is present in the main lake .  The lake should open up completely in the next few days as temperatures warm.  Water level February 27 was 0.95 feet below normal pool level, release rate = 7 cfs.   Brushpiles placed into Clinton August 11 and 12, 2008.
