Well, it has begun…… I can always tell, because I get up at 2:00am. to push snow around. This was our first semi-productive storm. About half rain and half snow. Total of about 4″ on the ground, but most melted quickly. We had a spike in river flows due to this “flash melt”, but it wasn’t a big one. Snow up high fell on warmish ground and will melt off slowly with chillier days and colder nights. Another storm is coming next weekend, but looks to be a warmer rainy one. We will take what we can get! Glad I put winter gear in the truck, did you? Roads are slippery……Not much snow on the ground yet, so parking is still easy. As it gets lighter-later in the morning, you can sleep in a little more before going fishing. Mid-morning the river starts too enliven a bit. High noon is the warm spot, if indeed it is warmer. I think the Hoppers are done for the season. Midges will be the special, with a side of BWOs…Dress for excess…
