    It couldn't have been IanO. The beach is on the wrong side of the river for him. #MoveTheBeach

    Maybe they can make a second, slightly smaller beach.

    Not too bright.

    There’s still large areas with ice coverage. Fall in and the current would drag a person under the ice.

    Where are those areas? I've crossed the river on 4 different bridges and excpet for some spots along the shore in the shade, the river is pretty clear.
    I am in no way entitled to your opinion...

    Crossed the river about an hour ago on the Anthony Henday’s west bridge and a large area going around corner looked totally iced over with ice flows.


    Here’s another spot. Note the ice flows visible from the near-live cam

    Very clear of ice here by UofA (maybe all in a logjam to the west edge where I saw ice)

    there's still ice where the current encounters shoals, sandbars, and gravel beds. It should all be gone by Sunday. KC is right, this is NOT the time to be out on the river. Not only is it cold, and if you get pulled under ice - you're dead, the river is ripe with debris and other springtime fun. Remember, this is runoff season...
