If anyone is going up from the Appleton area and wants to bring some back, message me.  I'm snowed in at work.  I love making the trip, but I don't see that happening this year.

According to the Ashland Chamber of Commerce, someone pulled in a half bucket of smelt last night:

My best guess would be another week at the earliest. Not a local though. Do you siene or use dip nets? The pier for dip netting is boarded up and unusable as of 2 weeks ago.

 I was looking for a little advice from locals or anyone else with a general prediction of when the smelt run will occur.


My family has been making an annual trip up to Ashland the last several years and with the late ice-out this year it is making it more difficult for us to plan our trip (5 hours from Appleton).


Is there any chance, with the current forecast, that the smelt will be running by this weekend? Or is it likely occur during the week next week and into the weekend?


Thanks for any advice or input

Considering there was a truck driving out today, I would think it will be a while.  When I was out Sunday morning there was still close to two feet of solid ice.  Unless there is some major warmth and rain, I would say at least two weeks until things are open.

I was only reporting what they told me at Anglers All as of this morning.  They also were referring to the smelt run, not ice out.  They are happy to answer any questions at 715-682-5754.
