Keyman, that fish wheel looks like a medieval siege weapon!.....

Is it true that when the ice first breaks up, it makes a "groaning" noise? I remember this episode of "Northern Exposure" when the whole town was waiting for the ice to finally crack in the spring thaw, when it did the groan echoed throughout the whole valley...

Unfortunately, I haven't ever seen the ice breaking apart. I'm sure it makes some noise when it cracks, but not like the ice burgs you see on the TV. I think that you have to be within seeing distance of the river to actually hear it. It is slow moving here, maybe only 2-3 mph. Most large things made here look kind of primitive, unless you have lots of $ or some sort of requirements are needed. It is kind of like a third world country out here.

Here is the fishwheel in operation on the Kuskokwim river. The wheel scoops up the fish and they slide into a box. We found 2 whitefish and 1 sucker on the day that we took this picture.
