Snows have been slowly melting throughout the week as the weather rises to 40 degrees and above. Small, icey creeks and rivers are starting to thaw into beautiful streams of water for creek chubs, minnows, trout, and bass to return. Just a couple more weeks and the snow on the ice will be all melted and then it’ll be time to get on the kayak and enjoy the water. Already, I’ve seen dozens of anglers onshore fishing for muskies, pikes, crappies, bluegills, walleyes, and many other species throughout Red Cedar River as well as Lake Menomin in Wisconsin. It’s an amazing sight to see others enjoying the weather and fishing. Soon, I’ll be out there too.
