    Wondering, with this heat wave of 40 degrees, if the ice is moving out and the MO River fishable from CB?

    When I crossed over the Missouri at St. Charles yesterday on the way home from work it was full of flow ice. I wouldn't even have considered trying to put a boat in that stuff, it would be a recipe for disaster.

    Thanks Mark. I had been going to work and returning in the dark. Crossed the MO today and there is still quite a bit of ice flowing. Who knows how long it will take to clear out. Might be chock full all the way to Nebraska.

    The Mo River was full of ice yesterday and not moving, came over the 370 bridge in St Charles 2pm today and looked to see if any change...and the fog was so thick couldn't even see the water!

    Here in St. Joseph, MO the ice has cleared out for the most part. There are:laugh1: a few chunks breaking away from behind dykes but it is fishable.

    That is good news and warm weather is ahead this week. So, are you getting your boat hitched up or what?

    I was really, really bored today and drove all the Mississippi River Pool 26 accesses and found the river iced over. Clear below Winfield but the ramp is not usable. Some clear water in a section near Portage de Sioux but no usable ramps again.

    Onward to the Missouri River over 367, no ice except for an occassional chunk.

    Went next to Columbia Bottoms, same conditions and the ramp is usable!!!!


    Time to go fishing tomorrow but........got a call from my daughter in KC. She is having her first baby TOMORROW! My first grandbaby, and it's a GIRL!!!:Happy:
