River Opens Up

The river opened up through Baudette sometime during the past 24 hours. One wonders how that can happen with all the winter-like weather we’ve been having, but most years you can mark the calendar that the ice will go out sometime during the first week in April regardless of what the weather is like.

Fishing reports that I’ve heard are not very good; even the open water fishing up east in the Frontier and Birchdale areas. The lake ice is still solid and extensions are still needed on augers most of the time. Fishing on this side of the lake is poor to fair. The only good reports I’ve heard are from those that have been across the lake. It’s like my neighbor said; the fish think it’s still February.


The River’s Out April 5th
