    I just got off the slope Thursday,went across the Warren Ames bridge and saw open water.Way cool.Went across the bridge in Soldotna and there is still ice on both sides of the bridge.There was a few spots that are trying to open up but not yet there.Supposed to be around 50 degrees today so there is still hope.Might be good time to head to Seward,forecast on NOAA is for 2' sea.Rockfish,chickens,maybe a winter King.Got to go...........

    I'm at 24 mile and the river is open about half the way accross and flowing strongly. The ducks are having a great time flying up about half a mile and floating back down.

    Default sucks to be you!

    The river was flowing yesterday from Skilak to Bings. The Koffler floated the whole thing! We tried calling Baker yesterday a couple of times. Good company, good beer, and some echo lake cheese and caribou sticks. No fish, missed 2.

    How'd you get into the river? Push the boat across the ice?
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default It's open

    We just drove through Cooper Landing, the river is open from about 100 yards north of the bridge. Lots of folks floating the river.
