How much ice do you guys have in Thompson or further north?

Much snow?

Probably a little early to be thinking about ice out, but as the days get longer, it's hard not to....

In general...or you can be specific, it certainly won't hurt my feelings...

Do you find the fishing to be "best" right after ice out, or a few weeks past?

As fishermen, the season opener is often more about getting out, dusting off the gear, putting the boat in the water. The weather RARELY cooperates. Often rain, and even snow, is on the menu for the weekend. Heaven forbid you sleep in a tent, for fear of freezing your fingers off (the least of your worries regarding what is set to fall off!).

Personally, I can be found on a lake "somewhere" for opening day, but it's usually memorable for things other than the fishing.

Would love to hear about your thoughts.

T minus 64 days until opening day....May 19.

Good post, it depends what species your fishing for I find opener in May is generally not good for Walleye fishing, Pike is hit or miss but lake trout fishing is awesome, so for me opener is me targeting lake trout, rainbow trout and Pike, Walleye are usually better come June. I can’t wait to head out Laker fishing! :)
