The Rainy River is open just west of Franz Jevne State Park now. Franz Jevne is 2 miles east of Birchdale.
Nelson Landing at Birchdale is still frozen solid but the open water is moving along despite the cool temps.
The river has opened up 12 miles in the past 5 days.
Temps are forecasted to stay cool again this week but the wind is supposed to kick up. That could chew some ice up. Stay tuned for more updates.
