Now that the river is iced over I am wondering how much ice there is by 6th street (Root River Rec). If anyone knows please pm me and thanks.

Thanks for update. With these cold temps I'll wait for a little warming. Keep posting good stuff guys! I know there's ppl who may ruin our fishing but heck with em. Bass fishing can be the same. Life's to short. Tight lines!

On Tues the flow was good, however rain is in the forecast for today and tomorrow, so I think it might be a while before it returns to a good stage. Ice around the edges but nothing that you can't navigate.

Hi Guys...just wondering how the flow is and if anyone has some good fishing tales. Coming up next month and maybe a day in between for a meeting. Not concerned about harbor ice. That's not my thing. Thanks and tight lines!

Either buy a commercial "cure" or make one with borax.

Look for recipes on line for curing salmon eggs.

It takes about 24 hours as you will need to dry the eggs for 12-24 hours and then pack in borax

I know borax sounds all wrong but that is the way it is done.

Easiest to just buy Pautzky fire brine or one of their other "flavors". Pro-Cure is another good brand

I was recently given fresh steelhead eggs. To those who use fresh eggs, what do you do to keep them good? How do you keep the eggs that aren't in sacs fresh? I know to wrap the sacs in tin foil. I haven't had much luck with this in the past. Thanks in advance!

Yeah, I understand, I had an imported guy take my spot on the beach of all places because a fish pulled me out of it by about 20 feet. Upon my return he refused to move so I got in front of him and had an accidental short hook set. The lure went right past his face. He moved, but the lack of consideration these people have really gets you pissed off. Fishing in groups helps a lot.

Deadeye, I'm mostly just sick and tired of the idiots that think they can wade with their fly rod straight into my spot, snagging fish right where I'm casting. Especially when I'm the guy that gets to my spot at 6 in the morning. So yes, if I'm catching them, I'm going to refrain from spreading it on the internet.And all of these are examples of what I've seen recently.

Hey guys, I haven't fished The Root lately but everyone has gotten tight as a clam about the action in small streams with limited holes to fish. Unfortunately these sites or reports will probably be a thing of the past in the near future because people blame the high turn out during the runs on the internet. Really the high turn out started long before the internet ever existed but post a spot and it is sure to get crowded so everyone has clammed up.
