    How is the water levels at the ramps? Debris bad? Headed out tomorrow and curious as to what launch will be usable. Thanks

    water level looked normal to me this AM. Didn't look at a ramp, but my normal observation of pilings for clarity purposes.

    In the short time I was at the seawall, I saw a fair bit of junk floating down the river.

    Watch out for pallets and such. Never know what you will encounter after a storm such as this. Ice only exponentially magnifies "things" that have slipped into wild running currents. Be careful out there.

    I saw 2 pieces of wood nearly identical in size and suspiciously next to each other about 4 ft apart...

    Fished near the Elizabeth Park launch yesterday afternoon 4 to 5:30. Got our 3 man limit in a little over an hour. This morning was a whole different ball game. The water was very muddy with a lot of debris, fished for 2 hours without a nibble!

    Near the Liz launch? Do tell, I honestly never fished that section north of the bridge.

    After limiting last two days went out by Elizabeth park this morning and water was muddy. Didn’t get a bite all morning. Still a awesome first Trip with two limits this weekend!

    I have never caught a single walleye fishing the channel edges while Elizabeth Park was in sight. Never....;)

    well that's because walleye all use the teleportation system that takes them from about 100 yd south of the free bridge, right up to the golf course.

    It was dirty today. Only a few inches of visibility at best in trenton channel. Went out for a few hours and decided my time was better spent chasing down a mini remote and buying some handlining weights since I forgot mine in Kalamazoo. Accomplished both of those things and heading to a seminar this evening.

    Water level is still dropping.
