The ice is off at Grand Forks today. If the forecast holds we will be fishing cats in just a couple weeks. In my experience a cold snap will put a hold on that but one never knows this year. I realistically can see starting guiding the last week of April at the rate we are going.
We have lots of early openings available and throughout the season. Get your trips booked soon to get the dates you want. Weekends are filling first.
