Sunny, with a high near 20. Wind chill values as low as -4. West wind 8 to 10 mph.
Quite cold again today, but the sun is intense enough that there is melting going on outside the shop window right now. Later tonight the weather turns warmer as a south wind pushes the cold air out. That means far better fishing tomorrow and Sunday as well as next week with temperatures in the high 20s to mid 30s!
Fishing has been solid on leeches, scuds, and small nymphs rolled along the bottom. On the warmer days, we have seen quite a few winter stones emerging as well as some midges hatching. There are rising fish, and there will be even more as the weather turns warmer!
Streets are mostly plowed and shoulders are clear enough to park on on the larger creeks. Just remember to make sure you can pull off the road completely and safely!
