    We just got 9 inches of snow in 4 hours you boob, I think it's still winter...just a few warm days, there is plenty of water though, which looks good for the spring season...

    I know it's cliche but in terms of fishing, "it is what it is".
    I'm hoping for a gradual transition to Spring. IMHO, it sucks when the temperature goes from consistent 20's-30's to 70's-80's in the course of a week or 2.

    The reason I started this thread is because I'm trying to decide which chunk of spring to take off work.

    April 21-30, or April 28-May 7th...

    I think the bugs matured a lot during the warm up we saw prior to the storms hitting and the bugs will be here by second-third week in april. That said, I think we are going to see major spillage on all the tailwater systems/downstream water so when it comes to the risk of high flows I think you are better off playing the later week of 4/28-5/7. By that time, the water temps will for sure be fine and you can find fishable water even at 5-7k cfs somewhere where fish are looking up. Also a less likely chance the beaver kill is ripping if you need a freestone option in the event the tailwaters are really really ripping.

    Good grief you’re a hot mess. This is what happens when you are out from under my expert tutelage. You can’t even post an avatar correctly. What is that a driftboat in distress?

    To the contrary Mac. WBDLuver is just showing his superior selection in drift boats . Clacka’s may “fear no rock”, but Hyde’s fear nothing!!
