I am in class all week for my job but today our instructor was tasked to babysit some middle schoolers that were having a field trip to the school so after an hour of class we were sent home for the day. no problem for me as the water is always calling my name. i hit an upper section but water was more like mid summer flows. managed a couple but the flows were to low so i went down further where water was more abundant. fishing was slow down river as well but a little better. it was certainly better then sitting in class bored to tears.

Jake and i drove off to get a taste of something different the other day. the fishing was a bit slow, it had it's moments and the weather was decent for over there. jake nymphed most of the day and i threw meat most of the day. jake caught a few more then me, in fact i only moved 2 fish but luckily landed both. i ended up with a 19" 'bow' and a 20" brown. not bad be we were hoping to pull something a couple inches bigger.

I picked up ali from daycare, drove home to get saxon and we made the short drive to the water. the weather was great and the water had sub sided quite a bit in the last day or two. rigged up with streamers as usual and they managed to pull some fish. not a phenomenal outing but decent. i let ali fight a fish but she struggled getting the rod tip up and she ended up losing that fish.

Things are still frozen up. me and chris drove to a certain piece of water but the river was frozen up. we decided to check out a nearby res., but it was froze up as well. option C it was the water and the weather were great, but the fishing was crappy. a couple of small fish nymphed up for both of us.

Proved to be unproductive but a nice change of pace. lots of rain and warmer temp's have messed up some of the rivers so i drove up to a lake and one of the fingers was thawed out so i gave it a whirl. i only managed one small rainbow on a chironomid. jake showed up as i was nearly done so we drove down to the creek for a short minute. i stuck to my guns with streamers and came up empty handed and jake quickly switched to nymphs and killed it. i think i will head back over there this week with my nymph box.
