The top half of Clear Lake is pretty well open now too, and the bottom half will probably be ice free this week also.

Still some ice out on the main body of the lake as of last night but this rain this morning should pretty much take care of that. Got the marine railway hooked up yesterday, I may try to put my first section of dock in this afternoon then I can put the boat in the water and fet out there and do some fishing.
So far reports I have gotten from a few friends are telling me water temperatures are at about 42° and the long range forecast is showing us staying well below normal for the next two weeks at least.
So far, no reports of the crappie showing up in a few of our favorite spots as of yesterday. Soon though I hope!

I can't help but laugh looking at those pictures, that's what spring looks like eh? Its going to be WEEKS before I see any open water, still 34-36" of ice under my hut......3-4 feet of snow in the bush, and they just issued a heavy snowfall warning.....another 20-30cm today and tomorrow!!!
