While most are happy to keep with the short rods on the fleeting ice, I am breaking out the long rods out after work today. I will be hitting the Fox in Yorkville starting at the parking lot by the bridge if anyone wishes to join me. I will be there around 4/4:15. I am hoping Freemans is open for a few minnows to bring me a little extra luck, if not o well. I'll monitor my post if anyone is interested for a wade. I'll be the stout guy with a big fat seegar hanging out of my mouth.

Good luck out there Kev. I'll be up-river of you in a couple weeks, hitting the Montgomery/Oswego area. Water is still a bit cool for my liking, but once we hit 38 - 39 degrees, I will start searching for eyes and brozebacks again.

Can't wait to hear how you did!

It's probably too late now, but they just finished putting in a new plant outflow just down stream. They had a temporary dam built all around it while they worked on it and it went away about a week ago. All new rip rap shore. That's the deeper side anyway. Nice channel running right in front of it.

River is flowing at 1350 cfs, so it's got a little push and depth.
But if you make it to the other side, may as well check out Blackberry.

I would imagine a few active walleye might be around.

Tie a better knot on your bucket to belt this time. 8)~

Funny stuff Ken. Good to hear from you, I hope to see you out there sometime.

Well here is how it went:
After suffering at work in anticipation of fihsing I finally made it out and to Freemans. I picked up my dozen minnows and got to the parking lot by about 4:15 to see 4 guys out fishing. I was anxious as I figured maybe something was biting with so many people out. I donned my new leakless waders and started my adventure out. Water levels were low and the water was crystal clear. I did not take a water temp. As I waded across I noticed the massive amount of goose activity and knew that we are finally turning the corner to spring. I ventured around with nary a bite to be had. After talking to a couple of th eguys out there, they only had one bite and snagged a carp. They were in one of my preferred spots so I moved on. I got to my area and casted around, and around, and around. I thought maybe I might have had a bite but could not be sure. Nothing else was happening. I decided to make my way back casting and working the areas along the way. I ventured by the guys from before and they were happy to have landed a fat smallie. I congratulated them and worked my way back without any bites. I wrapped it up at 6:30. Although it was an skunk I loved being out in the water. Things should really start to pick up within a week or two at the most.
