Ice On The River, Still Some Boats Out

Although there are a few spots where you might get a boat in, any real cold weather will probably end it.  Here’s what I saw, which could have already changed.  The river below (downstream) of the New London boat ramp is chocked full of ice.  The river above the ramp remains open to the iron RR bridge.  Northport is open to the oxbow AS LONG AS NO ONE GOES AND BREAKS UP THE ICE PACK ABOVE THAT POINT.  There was a bit of open water at Weilands and at Gills as ice gets jammed up on bends above those points.  Chicos Landing has always been one of the places I could fish late in to the season again, AS LONG AS NO ONE GOES AND BREAKS UP THE ICE PACK ABOVE THAT POINT.  Find some deep water and you should find fish.
