Tunkwa iced off last weekend, water temps vary from 45 to 50 Deg. Fishing’s been slow with a few hatches of smaller chironomids reported, water clarity varies in different areas of the lake. Throat samples show daphnia. Fish have been caught on small black and silver rib chironomids, red, green and black micro leeches and pumpkinheads. Lake water levels have been rising rapidly from the creeks flowing heavily into the lake and frost coming out of the ground with early summer like temperatures up here instead of the cooler past years Spring trends most likely causing the water clarity. The outflow to Leighton started a couple days ago.
