Rivers North Fishing Report

Ol’ Man Winter

January 5th, 2009 at 6:54 pm

Not a whole heck of a lot to report from the river fishing side of things right now.  Cold weather has taken it’s toll as chilly water temps & ice has Steelhead/Trout fishing a bit on the slow side.  The slow fishing is typical when water temps are like this, fish don’t move around much & there isn’t much of a reason for them to eat a lot.

Ice fishing has been more relaxing than freezing your butt off in single digits temps with a fly rod in your hand.  The shelter of the ice shanty & Mr.Heater feels good on those absurdly cold days!  Pike fishing has been good-most fish have been on the small size, but still provide for some good times!  Our inland lakes already have a ton of ice for this time of the year-some lakes nearly have 20 inches!  Ice fishing is a longtime Yooper tradition & helps break up the monotony of our long Winters!  Plus a meal of fresh caught Walleye, perch or Bluegill sure is tasty!
