There is not that much ice! On Water street, behind Hanney's car place, there is some ice forming in the inlet, but the main channel is still open! There maybe an inch or two, but I wouldn't take any chances! I went by there today, the ice is covering most of the river, except the main channel, and a few spots here and there! I have been told by a few people, that in Bedec, in Richibucto-Village, as far back as last week, some people have been fishing on the ice, in the small inlet, but I'm very skeptical, but I know some guys that are crazy and dumb enough to try! I would wait at least until the end of the week, if the cold weather wants to stay around! Not like yesterday, with all that rain! I would love a good feed of smelt for Christmas, that's probably one my favorite Christmas gifts ever!

On Christmas day there was 8" to 10" in Aldouane with a few shacks out at the stop sign at Pointe de l'Eglise.

Any update on ice and smelt conditions in Rexton ? Thinking of heading there this weekend to try catch a feed if all good. Thanks

Haven't measured it, but there's enough ice there for sure. more than 12''. People have had vehicles on the ice by the church. The main channel is still open in places.
Fishing has been hit and miss according to most people. Some have had days where a limit could be caught in 30 minutes, others had days where they caught 5 smelts all day.
I'll be there tomorrow in a red quickfish3, stop by for an update and a coffee if you wish!
