Ice fishing is near
« on: January 11, 2003, 01:52:32 PM »
Went by Meadow Brook yesterday. There was some ice, but not enough yet. Hopefully, with all of this cold weather we can get some safe ice here in Southern RI. I've got all my gear ready to roll. It's not quite as good as being out in the boat, but at least it is fishing.
A bad day fishing is still better than a good day at work!!

Wilson's res. in Pascoag was full for the first time today. Around 4" of good ice. With the coming weeks temps., I think there will be plenty of safe ice next weekend.

 :) :) ;D ;D Went fishing on Meadow Brook yesterday. Caught a nice 5 1/2 lb, 24" long salmon, as well as a decent size brook trout. The salmon made facing the 10 degree weather worth it.

There were about 30-40 people fishing, however catches were sporadic. Ice thickness was about 6" or more in most places.

I think I'll be going out again on Monday afternoon. Gotta go while there's ice.
