    They will come in the river just in time for it to half ass freeze for about 2 weeks where it's not yet safe to walk on and cant get a boat out.

    I think we are good for awhile there’s plenty of crazy guys that will do there part to keep the launches open . I was pushing sheets of ice late December with the boat last year after that it warmed up. I think a couple inches of rain will be our biggest worry, seems like it doesn’t take much to blow that river out for a week or 2.

    Last year I broke one tail light and lost my trailer plate but was slaying limits with the quickness. Well worth it. I got a new boat this year that will break the ice better so as long as there isn't a ton of ice ill be ok.

    Will two inches of rain cause issues now? I'm curious if we'll have anymore "blow outs" like years past or what will people consider a "blow out" now? When the dams were operational, we all knew what was fishable and what wasn't. However, since Sanford and Wixom went, we haven't had any torrential rains and it feels like we would have to have such an event to create problems that were persistent in the past.

    We had a couple hard rains and it didn't affect bay city enough to stop fishing. The current is a lot slower so it seems everything is settling before it hits bay city so we haven't had to deal with dirty water much.

    Don’t think u will see that. The flow charts have been pretty constant since the flood event.
