Default 2014 Braidwood opener

Anyone know the date that Braidwood is opening this year? This long winter has me wanting to wet a line as soon as possible!

I'm going off of memory here, but I think these are the openings.

-Braidwood: March 1st

-Lasalle: March 15th {with restrictions...}

-Heideke: April 1st

I believe Lasalle always opens on a Wednesday. It would be the 12th or 19th this year.

Nice hopefully this snow will melt by then so I can get the boats out of storage and have a place to park it!

Braidwood lake opens March 1st. The forecasted high for that day is 25 degrees as of right now. Think I'll have to wait til it gets a little warmer
