my dad was out there last weekend and he said the ice was getting pretty bad in a hurry. he said he couldnt fish the same spot as he did the week before because the river opened it up. I cant say for sure how it will be this week but personally I am done for the year and dont want to risk it. the ice was only 12 inches in places two weeks ago. Id try casting into the open rivers with summer gear. There has to be fish moving through there right now.
