Ice conditions aside we are starting off the new year on a good note. Fishing in general improved over last week, which was good to begin with. Guys have started finding perch again in the deeper water, and you will have a hard time getting away from bluegills there are so many out there right now. Checkout my facebook page for some pictures of big fish caught recently. https://www.facebook.com/schafersriverrentals/ Ice conditions continue to be on everyone’s mind, I would say over the dredged areas we are averaging 6″ with some places with more. The channel close to Rosebud Island across from the shop is thinner due to the flow. There are ATVs going out, if you are planning on taking yours just be careful and check the ice you are unsure of. Good luck and get out while the fishing is good!
