Up here people come from everywhere to fish as the ice goes out. People are pushing boats, and not just little ones, over shelf ice to get into the river. We have a million plus acre lake that the Walleyes come out of and run the river in the spring. This is a world class fishery when they are spread out, so you can imagine what it's like when they are packed into the river. It can be the most amazing fishing you ever saw, till the other rivers coming in let go and muddy it up. Up till then though most people would think you were lying about it it's so good. The crowds are probably the worst you have ever seen. I'll post photos as soon as I can.
