Met dbone at his house at 0730 and from there we made the trek to the river with hopes that it would be open enough to fish. although it was choked up with ice pretty well it was good enough for us. the weather started off not to bad, pushing 30 degrees but no wind. there were no fish to be had all day with only a couple of fish seen. once the wind finally did start to pick up the temps really seemed to drop and at that point it was time to call it a day.

I'm on the river for about an hour, the water is great with about 5ft of vis. I get to a certain hole and fish up to the middle to a point where it gets deep. walk back down about 30yds and cross. walk around to the top of the hole and in a matter of the 5 minutes that it took, all of a sudden the river came up, was brown, big chunks of ice and other debris floating down. that turned to shit real quickly.

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
