Almost 50 and sun today should help melt the rest of the snow we got this past week. Next week is calling for a lot of rain, which should help knock this ice down a bit. I am still hearing around 20″ of ice on the main lakes, but the creeks and rivers are sure opening up. Getting onto the lakes can be precarious as I have heard some of the shorelines are starting to open up as well. If you are planning on heading out, make sure to be diligent in checking the ice all the way out to where you are fishing. Any moving water can cause thin ice that may not be noticeable on top so make sure anywhere near creeks/drainages/shorelines you are checking.
