never done any good in it during the winter
walleye run isnt far away though...if you time it right...you can come out with some good eats
should be starting early to mid march...sometimes you can catch them all the way up towards heavies, sometimes even farther up.
last year we didnt do worth squat on them, even though they were there
year before we tore em up.
best to get them closer to the lake earlier in the year around gap creek.
ill be going soon to check it out
as far as smallie fishing, never did any good in winter on powell. think they found the few deep holes and just sit there, dont bite anything. didnt do any good deadsticking, or float and fly w/minner either last winter.
