River conditions

1 post in this topic

Some folks wanting to know about river conditions.

We had a very tough freeze-up to say the least! Only my sixth winter here but I'm told it is quite unusual by some pretty old salts.

We had open water by us until a day or 2 before Xmas. Had sledders coming by a week or two before that and I finally think I'm ready to ride my sled to town on the river. Have a few dozen tracks by us & when I went accross the bridge to Rainy yesterday saw a very heavy track going down river past the airport.

The Canucks that have their shacks across from us pulled them out with trucks a week ago and I know Art at Clementson has been putting houses out for a couple of weeks but best to talk to them about conditions there.

I think the river may be ready for sled travel (at least my sled) but you can bet I'll be following a track. Only statement I will make as to trucks: BE CAREFULL!

FYI - Fish are biting on the river.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
