That picture could have been taken 4-5 mornings and evenings out of the last 8.

One word for temp, wind and fishing today at Birchdale..... brutal. morning low of 3, high of 17 with 18-30 mph nw wind.

The one positive is due to the wind there was less floating ice for boats and lines to deal with.

Tomorrow looks a little warmer, after a cold start, with less wind and the forecast next week is for highs in the 30's and lows in the teens - a big improvement over the last week.

The river has been dropping the last 2 weeks and is low enough now so new danger spots are visible and some normally safe areas are questionable.

Clarity is good though when there's no ice.

Another positive - kind of a risky prediction most years - but am going there anyway and say with the current forecasts the Bigfork and Littlefork have no chance of going out before April 14.

I don't think it has opened up anymore towards the West but I could be wrong. Last I heard and seen pictures Frontier was iced in again and don't know if it iced up back to Birchdale. We have cancelled our Sturgeon trip for now due to the ice conditions, future temps and 38 mph wind gusts. We will give it a try first week of May hoepefully..................Kirk

I heard birchdale was froze up two days ago. I was going to make a trip up there, but conditions aren't very good.
