Another River Update

Winter wants to hang on and the river ice is slow to go. As of this morning, Wednesday, the ice is out past Silver Creek, but not yet to Baudette. Yesterday, Kooch County opened up the Vidas Landing, so the three accesses upriver from Baudette; Birchdale, Frontier and Vidas, are now open. Fishing, I understand, is good; catching is a little challenging. One person I talked to caught more slot fish walleyes than smaller ones. They also caught several pike while fishing for walleyes with a jig and a minnow. I understand that those people who were targeting sturgeon were doing very well. Sturgeon fishing is catch and release. With just a few days left until the season closes, there are a lot of  fishermen around. Looks like the weather is going to be ok thru the weekend.
