    Was out on the river today , there was some small chunks floating down, but more anchor ice coming up . Visibility bouta foot. Fished for 3 hours , no fish . I saw an ice jam above 6thstreet st the curve where 131/96 meet. Was maybe 1/4 mile long. Very minimal ice left below 6th street to Johnson park

    Well the river ice is moving again, yesterday it moved about 150 or so yards n stopped with out jamming, right now the river is clear of ice, haven't seen any small pieces, so i don't believe the whole river is moving, but i think that will happen real soon, i think fishing below 6th st. will be done for awhile

    not looking good right now, let me make a correction from my first post, i ment north park bridge not ann st.,,,well right now the ice is backed up about a mile up stream of north park bridge, some of the ice seems to b a foot thick n its stackin n backin up river, some of the ice is stacked up about 4 foot high n a lot of smaller pieces r sliding underneath the surface ice ...not looking good

    Holy flood situation. Plug the Grand River up with ice, and there will be a LOT of water to distribute in the lowest-lying areas around the river.

    Your information is correct. No chance of fishing 6th at the moment. Jammed farther downstream

    Wow, didn't know that, now that i look at the river gauge. i see down town is at action, n it's 3 foot below action up here. (i know sometimes the ice can play tricks with those gauges)

    Is it true, my neighbors said, he drove over the river down town n the water was almost level with the big dam, is he pulling my leg or what?
