Sub-arctic today, but the Chinooks are gathering and we expect to see some people headed up to Craig for a little fly fishing this weekend and into next week. The foreseeable forecast looks great if you’re an off-season angler. This forecast is based on todays conditions, so we don’t really know how quickly things will break up. A couple things to keep in mind: There is a tremendous amount of ice in the river as of yesterday. The slurpee machine is running from the Dearborn down, and there is a ton of shelf ice. Prewitt down is not floatable as there are still some blocked up areas. There is shelf ice from the Dearborn all the way to the dam. Close to as much ice as you’ll see on the Mo’.
Here’s the boat ramp forecast for the weekend. If you like it deep, you’ll be stoked!
