Hello?
« on: February 08, 2019, 11:07:05 AM »
Posted on the Erie forum too.  Just wondering if anyone actually uses these boards as there is not any recent activity.  Also wondering if the ice below the Dunnville dam is all gone due to the warm weather and high flows?  I fished it last weekend and got skunked, so I wanted another crack to erase the stink of that.

I might try Belwood again tomorrow if i can find some info not sure they are still open. I know Shades Mill is still closed due to gas spill, but no word from GRCA on Belwood.

Rivercats, you can definitely get on the River ice below the dam most years.  There had to be a couple hundred huts between the dam and the marina.  But I would think that ice is gone now.  It is hit and miss, primarily walleye.  When I fished it a couple of weeks ago, no-one I talked to caught much.  Last year I went there without knowing anything and got into a couple decent walleye.  So they are there.  I forget the name of the marina there, but they run a charter service.  They can tell you if there is ice as it is right outside their door.  Cheers.

Well checked out the Grand river and wow tons of people fishing. I setup in hut city and you guessed it caught nothing. Spoke to all the guys around me and nothing either. Maybe the day maybe the spot? I dunno.
