Bruneau Arm

Does anyone know if the Bruneau arm of CJ froze over the last couple days? I'd really appreciate a PM if anyone was down there today.

Thanks

What'd you find out? I"ll bet both Cottonwood and Jack's creek launches are frozen. Last year they froze about this same time under very similar conditions.

That would be 73 views and no PMs. I figured it was patchy this morning but the wind is probably preventing it from sealing over until tomorrow night.

Haven't been by there lately, but I seriously doubt that it's froze. Might have a film across the top, but nothing that would prevent you from launching.

I had to take a horse to Albion on Tuesday and that section of the Snake River was wide open. Went back on Thursday to pick the horse up and that same section of river was froze solid. :eek:

I was there yesterday, the launch isn't frozen but I was breaking ice in my boat to get back in the marsh. All of the silk water ponds add frozen though

That's how it starts, and with continued pretty extreme cold it may be that Ice skates, sleds/toboggans, and stander decoys are the only way to hunt that marsh till a good thaw arrives ... and stays awhile.
