The melt begins..

Spring is making an appearance here in the U.P., temps have hit as high as 60 degrees over the last few weeks.  Snow pack has taken a major hit as the warm weather coupled w a light rain this week has melted a large amount.  Cold nights have slowed the melting process which has kept our water flows in rivers at bay.  Currently some streams are running a bit up w the melt while others are still fairly low.  Lots of shelf ice & fairly dangerous wading conditions exist w the ice like this. Water temps remain frigid as the snow run off acts as a big melting ice cube.  Come out & help support local Marquette Trout Unlimited chapter in their annual fundraiser on April 3 at NMU.  Lots of door prizes & great live/silent auction items that have been donated to this years event.IMG_3607
