Take a peek at some of the recent posts here on the forum.

Temps started dropping around noon on Wednesday afternoon. Pretty cold thru the day yesterday and I woke up to 1 below here in Roseau. Slush and water on the lake road last weekend was froze up solid yesterday.

Gonna be a while yet???

The weather man is forecasting highs in the 40's this week and temps in the 50's this weekend, so we might be fishing open water very soon. If we could get a little rain and run off it would really speed things up...

I've been making regular trips up and down the river and there are promising spots opening between Loman and Birchdale. Loman to the Falls is open pretty good. The little snow makes it easy this year to get some good photos for the website. From Birchdale to here is pretty tight yet. Today was pretty chilly, barely made 10 degrees. Tomorrow we rebound and looks like 50 by the weekend. I'll keep checking because it won't be long now!

Take Care

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
