Not sure what GR got but we're headed back south on Sunday, so I can check it out. Around 40 through about Sunday, then closer to 30 for 3 days, back to mid 30's bay next Thursday. :scratch: Think I'd give the GR buddy a call by about mid-week & see what he thinks, if it was me.

in all the years i've paid attention to those webcams up there, i'm beginning to think that the gals comment about its been a good year for the fish and not so good for the fishermen is pretty darn accurate..........

there sure hasnt been alot of activity on them webcams this year....... especially out of the narrows!!!!!!

i know early season stopped me from 2 lakes i like to hit!!!!!!!

Lots of snow but the sun and warm Temps helped. Perfect snowball fight snow. I'm taking the sled out to go ride. Don't think I've trail rode in 20+ years. I'll have a better report tomorrow. South facing side hills in ditches were showing some brown but on shade slopes still several feet of snow
 Apologies for the slow response was out of town working for 7 days

Rode probably 20 miles on the sled, did go off trail and go back to where I grew up deer hunting down some old logging trails. I'm about 6' tall and there are plenty areas where snow was above mid thigh. Got the sled absolutely buried. Glad I still workout regularly or I would have been stranded. There are some slush on the lake. Talked to a few buddies out fishing. Plenty of times you drill a hole and 10 mins later you're sitting in water due to the pressure of the snow weight

Until the snow is melted and walkable ice is left I won't be fishing. I spent today rigging the new boat. Adjusting the trailer, putting the motor on and wave wackers. Ordering the mount for the two Helixs and the arm for the livescope. Looking forward to open water

Once it's all rigged I will! It's nothing crazy but it's my dream boat. 16 ft lund ssv with a 25 hp tiller. Wave wackers, 2 helix units, the livescope, three lithium ion batteries, a 12v 55lbs Thrust minnkota and throwable boat cushions for seats. Way safer than my 14 ft lund wc from last year

Yeah, I was surprised to see 'em out there too & never seen 'em set up. I did see them leave ~ 7, however, & it looked like they were both on wheelers to me. :scratch: My brother took the wheeler down to the NW PA on Bowstring that afternoon too. He said there was 2 trucks at the landing & 1 out on the lake with a wheelhouse, which surprised me even more. :shocked: :confused:

Supposed to get 10 inches of snow th8s Tues and Wed, I just signed up to work opener. I think a lot of lakes will open that week but don't think fishing will be that great. Leave Easter night for Banff, going to fish the Bow River before melt for trout

Iwas at the cabin last week but didn't fish. Never saw a person on the ice anywhere. Lots of snow and more in the forecast. Might try to make a quick trip after the snow starts melting but it's going to be a short time period between melt off and being able to get on the lakes. Access will go fast with all the run off.      :happy1:

Looks like it's still coming down pretty good at the Narrows, but a little lighter at GTE.
