Snow and Ice going fast

Friday was a beautiful day up here in the north country; sunny, near 50 degrees and the snow and ice was going fast. The river was opening faster that what I wrote yesterday and it appears to be on track to open up four or five miles a day. Although, the forecast for the next three or four days is to be cold and that may slow it some. I understand that up at Birchdale they are pushing smaller boats about 50 feet across ice to reach the water. There were a number of  boats and I understand fishing is good.

Friday afternoon and evening, Nick, Ryan, Topper and I fished by the bridge. We were looking to catch a pike early and that was slow; only one flag and no fish. As the sun was setting, we switched to walleyes and during the last hour, we caught four walleyes; two nice eaters and a 21″ and 22″ slot fish. We also caught five pike, three small ones and a 28″ and 32″. We were surprised to catch that many pike that late in the day. There are some nice fish in the river now.
