    And the snow just keeps coming... With another two days of snow in the forecast, temperatures projected to rise later this week. Travel on lakes still difficult with vehicles and most anglers walking out to fish. It’s hard to believe that a year ago at this time it was 73 degrees and the ice was out by the 21st of March. Some reports of peopl...

    Rain this past weekend followed by 7 inches of snow overnight (3/10/12) will make lake travel difficult on lakes with the slush that has worsened with last week’s warm weather and the weekend rain. Snowmobile highly recommended. Over the weekend bites have been slowing down and fish reports quite due to the incoming weather. Some die-hards fi...
