Took a drive to assess the snow/ice situation in the uintas. where i went there was no ice and barely a trace of snow. fished the 4 lakes in the basin and it fished terribly. between the lakes only a few fish and no colored up males. also the wind was as brutal as ive ever seen it up there. the water was white capping most of the day.

The water had dropped enough for me to give it a shot. the water was still higher then i like and wading was a little challenge but it was fine. busy couple of hours with a streamer, only landed 3 but man did i get into a lot of fish, they just wouldnt commit. i also saw some really big fish, but of course those big fish would just swirl and chase me.

Today was a good day. i woke up 40 minutes late and i missed my ride, guess they didnt want to wait an hour for me, but they were nice enough to wait at the bridge for me. the water was in great shape but the weather was a bit wet. it rained on us for about the first 3 hours and then finally the sun came out to dry us out a little. the fishing started a little slow but the second half of the day picked up nicely. we had a 26, a 24, 23, a couple of 20's and a handful of 17 to 19 inch fish. all in all it was a pretty damn good day.
