The ice did not set up very well this winter. About a dozen have tried to ice fish those that did were catching a few fish. At this time the ice is melting out. If we do not see a significant change in the weather we may be putting boats and docks in late this month or early next month.
Since there has not been much pressure on the fishery this winter there will be a very large holdover of hungry fat trout waiting for ice off. But remember as the ice goes off early so will all the other cycles too. Bugs will hatch earier and so on. You may want to move your spring trip to Diamnod up a bit to catch the hot bite. Keep an eye on this report as we will update as the ice goes away.
