Tell tale signs.

It is an early spring.
Not by my standards, but by the critters.
Heard my first Mountain blue bird yesterday.
A sure sign…..
The bugs are telling me too…..
Snow is melting fast, bears are waking up.
I don’t think there is any stopping it now.
Not that I’d want to…

Fishing has been really good.
Fish are feeling it as well.
They are moving about as the temps come slowly up.
Water has been bouncing between 40-44+.
Little dustings of snow melt right off.
Flows come up for a day, and are slightly off color.
The day after, the water clarity, is better.
A day after that, the flows start to come down.
Stability until the next storm.
The trick, is to catch the day before the storm.
We feel an increase in air temp just prior to a front’s passing.
This the best chance to hook up.
Warm before the storm……
