Today was the first day I was able to get out on the open water. Until lately the river has been frozen over.
Current conditions on the Red: There are floating ice chunks but they did get smaller as the day progressed. The temperature is in the thirties. The river is at a major flood stage which has put a lot of the standard fishing locations underwater. The water is running swiftly. The water quality is the same as always when fishing the Red, very muddy.
I did not happen to caught any fish in the 5 hours I spent fishing today. Several other fisherman around me also did not have any luck.
