Ice conditions – Recent warm weather and rain has made many area lakes ice sketchy. Before you head out on the ice, have a good report of safe ice. We could use a cold week!

Salmon River – The river has risen to 1500 cfs plus runoff. Before it rose, best fishing has been reported mid-river. Chartreuse egg sacks, pink worms, Great Lakes Steelhead Co jigs and stone flies have worked best. The upper end of the river fishes best during high water. Keep your offerings closer to shore than normal, as steehead will utilize the shoreline for cover from the current.
