We have had a very mild winter so far and we are thankful for that!  The Super Bowl is history and Valentine's Day is fast approaching.  We still have a few openings on and around Valentine's Day including Friday, February 10 and Friday, February 24.  Our Valentine's Day special can be used any night in February.  You can stay two nights, have a dinner for two, and chocolates for $379 plus tax or stay one night, have a dinner for two, and chocolates for $229 plus tax.  Here is a link to our calendar:   http://www.webervations.com/magic-scripts/resbook.asp?memberid=missionoak 
The lake is almost completely thawed and didn't have a very long life this year.  The trout love this cold water and have grown significantly already, some rainbows are close to 2 pounds.  The crappie, bass, and bluegill are also biting.
