- Spring finally hit the Northwoods last weekend. Thousands of anglers were celebrating an unofficial holiday - the inland fishing opener. Lakes and rivers were busy. Some even got in some ice fishing. However, the cold water temps made the fishing slow. Golf courses are opening 2 weeks later than usual. But not everyone is getting a late start. Eagle River Speedway was behind on prep work, but next week's opener is actually a week early.
