    Default Middle river reports?

    So we've changed out minds and it looks like we'll be fishing the middle river this weekend if at all possible on sunday. Anyone seen the lake lately? Any ice? Any recent fishing reports?
    It'll be cold, but we'll be ready with heaters, hand warmers, bunny boots, and snow gear.
    Any recent info would be very helpful

    Default and dark

    if your floatin, make it quick, and row some of the way, i know thats a pretty long float. but good luck, we were gonna do that, but the whole darkness issue steered us away. dont go into naptown! give a report!

    Goodluck!

    Heard that some ice flow formed between the launch on Skilak and the mouth of the Kenai River. I know of two different guys that tried to go but could not make it to the mouth of the river this past week. Wind blew it there is what is being said but I have not seen this myself so...

    Hey guys. Be safe, Like Lv2fish said. We are just doing sportsmans to jims. Mid is an awesome float but we are at the shortest day of the year pretty much. So darkness will come quick and if there is an ice issue it could be a long day. If you do run it of course share some pics and a report. Dont press it though. Stay warm and stay dry and have fun
