Default Ice out bass

So all of a sudden its 70F in New England. The ski season cut short and I am stuck with nothing to do. The ice has left my pond, so i'm thinking bass on a fly. But i'm not sure the best approach for this early in the season. Any tips?

Cant go wrong with a streamer. Yellow and orange I have found work pretty darn good. Clouser minnow style.

I'm not exactly a bass master but close to shore right after ice out seems to work for about everything.

Good luck,

Ard

Slow strips close to the bottom. They are very sluggish in cold water. Clousers work very well in cold water.
