I have not seen any ice but I havnt really looked for it either. From what I have seen it looks pretty good. I can take a better look in the morning.

Ejoe shot the river last weekend, ramp at 3 rivers was clear and he didn't speak of any ice on the river. Backwaters are still froze though.

The river was in fine shape. No trace of any ice. Water temps varied from 38 to 48 and up to 65 in the discharge. Fished from about 1030am to 530 pm. Only caught a few dinks but had a great time for the first day on the water.

Had a report with pics from a coworker that was out yesterday. Went in at Big Basin, then west over by Dresden. Had a stringer of nice crappies and a few 7 8 pound catfish. No pictures of the largemouth but he said he caught about 6 in the 12-14 inch range.
