Some cold nights have been around. We did not need this. I drove around Friday and checked out some lakes. What I found was open water on the small and mid size lakes. The Willow Flowage still pretty tight and could be iffy except for river. The larger lakes are looking on the iffy side also. With no really warm weather coming it is going to be close on these types of waters. If your planning on coming up for opener, plan on fishing small to mid size waters and feel fortunate if you find a larger lake open. Either way it sure will be nice to wet a line somewhere. I will try to post an update later in week.
