Thinking about a little Steelhead action this weekend.
Curious what the water is like and how much ice there is.
Anyone seen it lately?

:shock: I would plan on something else. They have been getting nailed with lake effect snow for over 2 weeks now. I have heard reports of 5 and 8 inches two different times in the last week. With as cold as the temps have been, I don't think there would be that much open water anyway. I would wait for things to warm up some and melt the snow to get some flow and depth to the creeks.

I don't mind the snow, the temps have been up and down, so I'm not sold on the water being iced over yet. Waiting to get some info from someone who hit it last weekend, I may try to call the hotline or tackle shop.

If not I'll be smokin' fish and hitting the Edge.

Forget it, stay home.

Rich D. and I were out there last weekend.
One creek was frozen over and the other was open, kind of, but no fish.
With the low temps this past week, I'm sure they're both solid by now.

The snow was no big deal. Falling in the water up to my neck was.

:shock:

Did you fish that hole before you went swiming in it? :lol:

With the lack of water I would think the fish would be stacked in that hole.
