Haven’t posted for a while…… When flows drop below 200cfs in town I will give the fish a break, by not pumping it up online. Then, add on a bunch of snow to plow, ALL NIGHT! So….my day-times are for recovery. I still go to the water almost everyday, 300 days on the water is where my bar is set. My report is, still no Skwalla to be found yet. Checking my bug traps and no takers so far, and no shucks on the shore. They are out on the Yuba, so we will probably have another week or two till they arrive here. We have a foot+ of fluff on top of a packed foot of snow underneath. This next storm coming, in another hour, will be bigger than we have had this year so far. That week of T-shirt (40deg) weather spoiled us. National Weather Service is predicting very high winds and a bunch of snow…..They used the term “life and death” for travelers. Carry blankets, food, water, and anything you might need for a day or two stuck in your car. Given that warning, I would wave off fishing this next couple days. I have caught enough fish in a gentle snow storm to want to want to go out. But having tried to fish in a 50mph ground-blizzard, I can say it would be good idea to wait. Proud to say I’ve reached the new best….230 followers…Thanks for your support!
