Rented a 400 2.8 (non-IS) for the trip.

I was there last weekend (Jan 9-10). Action was on and off. The river is still not frozen near the dam which I am told helps the action near the lock. Not sure how many are out there right now but I would say around 10 adults and quite a few juvies.

Andrew, I've got a small group going this Saturday, the 16th. By the looks of the weather report for Saturday, it's not going to be very cold. I'm beginning to think this year is not going to be as good as last year.


Silvrr, Those shots are absolutely excellent. I hate you.

The river is frozen between the dams but not for about a 1/2 mile or so on each side of 14 and 15.
