4 of us hooked up at 4am and headed out to check out some stillwater that iced off. the fishing was ok, although matt was killing it. the 1st half of the day the weather was gorgeous and then at about 1pm the wind picked up and didnt stop the rest of the day. it didnt kill the fishing though, but didnt improve it either. we finally got done a little after 6pm. i was having some camera issues so the pictures suck.

Our rivers are extremely high here, but one small stream, although very high, looked fishable. on the walk to the river i kicked up a flock of turkeys who eventually took flight to get away from me. crossing the river was a little tricky but certainly doable. i caught 2 fish right off the bat but soon ran into a no fishing sign which i hadnt noticed before. i have fished up thru there for years but decided i didnt want to deal with a potential run in with a land owner so i just decided to head back to the jeep and call it. the guy i know that lets me access the river thru his property has hounds and one of his hounds had killed a raccoon and was using it as his chew toy. the hound had a helluva time getting the fur out of his mouth
