My first time wading this area. I guess it was still too early to expect the walleye. Spent about 30 mins drifting jigs with store bought preserved emerald shiners. Tons of geese, swans and ducks to watch. Water was moving pretty fast but I was able to wade way out by the rapids without going over my waist, granted I am 6'4". Seems like a cool place, felt good to fish some open water.

Anyone have any tricks to prevent eyelets from freezing?

I have an old stick of chap-stick that I rub on the eye inserts; it works for a while, but you have to keep applying every so often.

It's nice to just get out this time of year and enjoy the solitude. I use spinning gear so I really only deal with the first two or three eyelets freezing. I just clear them every once in awhile.
