Dropped to 12 deg. or so last night…
The rotten snow is gone, with a slight dusting on crusty.
No need for snowshoes now….
Some brave soul drove into the parking lot at Glennshire.
That says the snow has condensed quite a bit.
I’ll walk in to avoid needing a tow…
Looks like three days of fishiness coming up.
Flows have cleared up, and come down slightly.
Had a couple of folks out, and all got a fish.
Missed a bunch though…..
I get to see many missed fish.
It’s a down-side of being a guide.
The fish here are fast grabbers.
You need to be gunfighter fast too!
Practice down-stream sets, before you come….if possible.
Heck, even dreaming about it may help….
Most folks set vertically and up-stream.
Takes it right away from them….
It helps a lot to develop this as muscle memory prior to our trip.
A different set direction, depending which side of the water you are on…..
The time it takes you to learn it on the day, will most likely be fish-less….
Which is not the point of this activity…..
Lots of critters out and about, making use of the fine weather.
I’ll be going out too.
Gotta practice my sets……
