Fishing in may part of the country has all but stopped. It’s that time of year when everything is frozen, but not enough to be safe to icefish. It is a great time of the year to watch wildlife. Milford Lake attracts many species of waterfowl and a few Bald Eagles.
I took a ride to Milford Lake during my lunch break to see if any Bald Eagles were around. The lake has a layer of ice over the majority of it. There was a large bird way out towards the middle but I didn’t have enough zoom to make out what it was.
The spillway is only flowing 25cfs so it is also mostly frozen. The water that was open had ducks swimming and herons lined up along the edges.
Milford Nature Center is having it’s annual Eagle Day on Saturday January 18th. Bus tours for viewing will begin at 9:30am with the last tour at 3:30pm, leaving from the Nature Center parking lot.
I guess until it warms up I’ll be tying more flies and wishing for spring to get here so I can get back to fishing!
