Fishing Report / News
Date: 2014-04-18


Despite a bad snow storm up here this week, the cold subsided quickly and warm weather is moving back through the area. Reports suggest that it will get in the upper 60s and possibly the lower 70s by Easter Sunday. Took a quick scouting trip this afternoon. You will all be happy to know that the lake has risen about 3 feet and is now just 5 feet down. The Chief River is flowing very nicely. From last week, Moss Creek and Hay Creek have filled up considerably, and there is no ice to see from County B Road by the West Fork. It is thawing nicely. The ice is beginning to turn a darker grey down by the Landing and water is continuously pooling in areas in the middle of the ice. While there are no guarantees with Mother Nature, if warm weather persists, there should be no problem having open water on opener. I will have a more detailed and accurate report on the status of open water approximately one week before opener. Have a Happy Easter everyone and I look forward to serving you all this upcoming season.
