Cold temperatures are not going to keep a passionate angler away from the water. With the right preparation fishing truly is a year-round activity. That’s why FishingBooker the largest online platform for finding and booking fishing trips in the US, created a list of top winter fishing spots, to help you find the right place to go. Merritt Reservoir made the cut! Winter anglers like Nebraskan waters because they tend to have far less
snow covering the ice than those in more northern locations. As an extra bonus, the breathtaking astronomical views make it a popular stargazing destination to boot. Your main fishing target in Merritt Reservoir will be the ever-popular northern pike. The biggest pike caught here weighed a whopping 22 pounds, and a few lucky anglers will catch fish in the mid to upper teens every year. Other winter catches include crappie, perch, and bluegill.
