Dbone picked me up at 4:30am and during the drive up the fog and the icy roads got bad enough that when we finally reached our destination, Dbone was pale white and when he stepped out of the truck he puked his guts out, he kept talking about vertigo. it messed him up bad enough that he sat in the truck for about 3hrs and eventually had to catch up to us on the river. the high was supposed to be around 30 degrees but it hovered around single digits all day. there was a pretty thick fog that blanketed the river all day as well. between the fog, snow, frost and quality fishing there were plenty of photo ops to be had.

Had a killer day on the water. the weather was pretty good and the fishing was excellent. threw streamers all day as usual. the fish in this stream are not of the very big variety. the rare 20 plus inch fish is in there but you'll mostly catch 14 to 17 inch fish. i never keep purposely keep track of how i do but for some reason i felt like it today. i finished 18 for 4six (six button does not work). lots of streamer action today

The day was filled with a mix of snow, rain and slush and very little fish. fished two different sections and the results were about the same, not much going on. one of the best things i find about snowy days is that the outdoors seem so much more peaceful

i hadnt fished this small stream in a couple of years. i drove to a section where i have some private access. after BSing with the owners for a short minute i hiked down to the river and it was in perfect shape. as usual in the winter, im sure i couldve done better nymphing but i have a hard time pulling the trigger on nymphs. it was streamers as usual and i only mustered up 1 small fish. i did miss a few others but it was still a great day. warm temps and lots of snow makes for a good time and some good photos.
