Thanks Bucbug. I went down yesterday (Saturday) with my son and his partner and my pop up tent. There was another couple from Fton Junction as well as a local fellow. Ice is about six inches, but you are probably right the water is still a bit high. No shacks as yet either. In the three hours we were there, my sons partner caught three tommy cod. None of the rest of us fishing caught a single smelt. So I am guessing the smelt have not made it up this far yet. I will try in a week or maybe two. Would appreciate any updates on when the smelt run starts. Cheers!
