Another message from Cynthia Bras-Benson with the Confederated Salish and Kooteni Tribal Fisheries Program:
No good news-sorry everyone.
As far as we know-all the public ramp areas are still iced in on the lake. It is looking better there is some open water in Skidoo and some out in front of Blue Bay but the boat ramp area is still not usable.
We felt we had to go ahead with the event and not postpone another week-even though we would like to. There will be staff at Blue Bay starting @10:00 tomorrow-through the weekend. No fish pickups anywhere around the lake.
