That my friend is the magical question every year, you just have to watch the forums and see how the ice out is going. I will be up for my sixth time chasing the mighty sturgeon and will be there first day after the walleye guys get out of town. Every year we anticipate the ice out and I can't wait to get up there and catch a prehistoric fish again...........Kirk

If u go onto clementson Resorts website and go back on the dates you should find a page that shows ice out dates of past years. That being said I'm thinking an early ice out with the way the year has been. I plan a cpl walleye trips and cpl sturg trips.

Its too bad clementson is closed for the spring and is for sale, they were great for riverupdates but LSF will have updates and threads going as we draw closer.

Yea I just heard that the other day. Maybe some one will buy it for spring opener. Other wise royal Dutchman has reports also. Have stayed there a few time and thought they were real nice people.

First of all, I am just pumped we are having this discussion!!!! Secondly, x3 on Clementson's, seems like a good deal for anyone interested in being Resort owner's on LOW/Rainy! http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/16498620/3583-SE-State-Highway-11-Baudette-MN/

To the OP I am guessing an early ice out also, I say a month from now there are going to be boats sliding across the ice! Sounds like the river didn't get a ton of ice this year, and warmer weather is on it's way!

I maybe reading this wrong but I just read where the walleye season closes on April 14, 2016 and the sturgeon season will open April 24th. I always thought that Walleye season closed on a Saturday and the Sturgeon started on the next day. Am I reading this wrong or have they changed everything this year?...........Kirk

Can't remember where I just read it, damn old age.
