The ice is breaking up around here pretty badly. I heard of several people who went through on Saginaw Bay the end of this week. Fortunately, there were no reports of deaths. This might just be the first winter in a few years that we don't have any drownings out there.
The rivers are all just about completely free of ice. The steelhead are starting to be found in the rivers with open seasons. The walleye were beginning to be caught just before the ice got bad on Saginaw Bay, but the rivers are close to walleye fishing until the last Saturday in April. That's when I hit the river.
