Have been back to the Slough 6 times since the thaw and have done well, limited on 3 trips and no less then 15 on the other 3 trips. Water is cold as I took a swim yesterday, stepped off the end of the dock.

Didn't find more than just over 3'' of ice this morning on the front of the Slough, not enough for me, back isn't open and probably won't be until open water. Done ice fishing for this winter.

Headed back to the Slough in the am, the front has been open for a couple of days with 5+ inches of ice, don't know if the back is open, will find out in the am.

Called the Slough this morning and the report is that there is lots of open water, hope it is solid again by next weekend.

Ended up with 19 nice gills yesterday before getting off the ice. Was going back this morning but changed my mind because of the warmer temps. They did close off the back of the Slough sometime last night or early this morning, people were still able to get in on the front of the lake but I'll wait for cold weather to return.

The snow cover is gone but that didn't seem to matter to the fish, limited out yesterday with some nice gills. On the bad news side of yesterday several people went thru the ice in an area in the back of the lake. With the warm up coming on Saturday don't know how long the ice will hold up. Be careful out there.

Much better on the Slough with some snow cover. Kept 12 and released over 20 smaller gills.

Fished the back waters of the Slough today, didn't get there til around 7:45 bite was already over. Stayed til 3 and packed it up, between 3 of us I think we caught 9 gills. Going back in the morning but much earlier.

Willow Slough was officially opened today. Going tomorrow to see how the ice is. Report to follow after I return.
