I guarantee there is ice in there right now, I just went snowmobiling near radium last weekend. I'd give it another week or so of this weather & hopefully it'll free up, but each year I've run it early we've run into lots of snow & nasty weather!
I heard through the grapevine that Brent Redding went up there two days ago and it was good to go. From what I hear they did it at just over 600 cfs. Since then it has gone over 800. I plan on going up tommorow if the weather holds and I can find someone to go with. Again, I heard this second hand but from a reliable source.
Yes, they did go up there. Sounds like the lines were clean, but the banks were all undercut with ice. Swimming was not an option because you couldn't get out of the river without dealing with the ice on the banks.
