IDFG Salmon Region Access Coordinator Greg Painter said today at 1:47 pm, "All the boat ramps between Salmon and North Fork will be cleared of ice by this afternoon.  The river channel appears to be open almost to the Newland Ranch Site below the Village at North Fork.  I would caution any boaters that there may still be some blockage and more may occur as the ice breaks from the banks and floats downriver."

Meanwhile, Tam Ambrose at The Village of North Fork reported the IDFG front loader was clearing the North Fork boat ramp at 1:30 pm.
