Tracks in snow on the ice...bobcat?

I found these tracks in the snow. Just a dusting of snow on the ice. These were right on the edge of the frozen "shelf" of ice on the stream. The track by the ruler measures 2 1/8 inches from front to back.

My son and I ruled out canine because we could not see any claw marks. Maybe because it is on the hard ice they do not show?

These are without any doubt canine, they are not even vaguely or remotely fisher or bobcat. If you look at the bottom of this link red fox tracks are 2-2 1/2".

Thank You everyone for your replies.

I did find out that a coyote was caught and released early in the season nearby on this same creek, less than 1/2 mile upstream.
