Sounds like you will have some good spots to go out and try. I hope you find someone in your area. Yjo might post something under the new board Fishing Partners.

Keep us posted and be safe.

I was loking at the map and it looks like it might be a great lake to fish. Can you give us some info on the lake?How is the ice now, What do you catch, where is it located, Is it a upland lake, and how far of a walk is it to the island.

Maybe we can get a group of guys to hit it together.

Thanks

Killdeer is a upland reservoir, Itís about 3/8 mile walk or ride to the island from the ramp, Itís is a great fishery in the spring and fall. Iím sure it would be lights out on the Ice as well. Iím not sure how thick the Ice is currently. I might run up Tues. or Wed. and check it out.  The lake has a very high catch rate, and not many people fish it. It has a lot of Walleye and Smallmouth as well as some of the biggest Blue Gills in the state. This lake is very clear with 6-7 visibility. (Great if you have a Camera)
The reservoir has a lot of structure to fish (I could email Lowrance waypoints or post them if anyone wants them)

Stocked by the Division of Wildlife: Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Walleye, Yellow Perch, White Crappie, Brown Bullhead, and Channel Catfish. Introduced through Tymochtee Creek are Rock Bass, Green Sunfish, and White Sucker.

the Ice it 2.5" thick and doesn't have much snow on it. I didn't go out very far it might be thicker in other spots

i would love to go to killdeer and fish it through the ice. i have fished some of the ponds around it through the ice and have done fairly well on the gills. Always wanted to fish the res but never have (through the ice) if the cold we have last all year I may just have to go up there and give it a shot, if you are planning a trip and don't mind the company i would love to go. It is usually me and another buddy that fish hard water, and that is all the company I can manage. I mostly fish for pan fish, and would love to try for some of those perch. My grandfather used to fish this lake alot back in the day but I never got a chance to fish it with him. I know that it has great structure and good fish just seldomly get up there to fish it. Again let me know if you are planning a trip and keep me posted on the thickness of the ice I am goign to put this on my to do list for the winter.

It should be safe now but, with all of the warm weather coming I really don't want to chance it. I really hope it doesn't destroy the ice!

I know where to find them during soft water season, If I could get a few people together to check the ice thickness I think we could catch a ton of them. it should be safe in a few days.
