Anybody been out lately? How does the ice look... I was thinking about walking out from the 65 access tomorrow (3-20-09) and just punching some random holes if anybody wants to stop by and pull up a bucket.

Craigums: starting to get a little soft and slowly pull away from shore near my cabin. Headed to LOW Wed not sure what it will look like by the time I get back. If it stays like this I would not be surprised to have the dock and lift in by April 15th, that would be a nice present to myself on tax day. If not I'll just request a bail out. crazy

Just got back from a couple of days of starting to open the cabin. Going to be awhile for open water, especially witht he colder temps sticking around next week. Cty road 19 access open water as the river is flowing pretty good to the south, in fact the main channel is open to towards the dam probably half way. There is open water on the access side of the road just about to the fishing pier, so I would tread real light in that area, as the moving water is going to keep eating away at the ice pak. Took a ride over to the #65 access. The dock is back in the water and signs posted " Thin Ice". Thats probably why I did not see anyone on the lake at all. Probably could have gotten on at the cabin with some planks but don't need fish that bad. Pretty obvious that the shore line ice had melted and then refroze only to about 1" in thickness. So be careful if you're going to adventerous and patient, it won't be that long, I hope. cool

The south end near the peir and bridge are open the rest is still froze over. Water is still really cold. Seen a guy launch a boat and anchor a little deeper than the pier, seen them catch a panfish. Id give it a couple weeks

I was at the cabin on Friday and the lake is still locked up tight. As stated the area near the Cty Rd 19 bridge is open all the way south to the spillway. Some folks on the pier and two boats on the water. The ice was still there however probably with 40-50yds of the pier. My cabin is on the other end in the main lake and it was solid right to the shore line. This warm weather should start to softent things up, a little rain and some wind would help as well. I'm thinking that it will be close to the 24th when it's totally open. I'm headed up again Thursday AM to start opening up, don't think the dock and lift will be going in though. frown

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
