On January 15th, opening day of Pablo Reservoir ice fishing season, Joe Frank from EatwildMT, met with Pablo native, Trey Nordberg for a day of catching jumbo perch through the ice on Pablo Reservoir. The Reservoir is open to fishing from sunrise to sunset, and we showed up a little after 8am as the sun was starting to rise above the snow-capped Missions. The access point to the reservoir during winter is located on the dam by the pump house. Extra care should be taken and noted, as there is no great access to get your gear onto the ice. You have to scale 20 feet of frozen rip rap bank to get to the ice.
