Low Water And Shelf Ice

Dad scoring an awesome brown 

Usually this time of year we are dealing with High Water. Not so much in 2015. The majority of the state's rivers and streams are extremely low. Add in the coldest February on record and most of our streams are frozen.

This guy took my streamer hard

There are still a few places to fish, and my dad and I tried our luck at two of them the past few days. We had to deal with constant shelf ice, 20-30 mph winds and picky eaters. We did manage to score some fish, but had to work extremely hard for them. Rotating through flies and tactics didn't seem to matter much. You just had to get lucky and cover a fish that was in the mood to eat.

It's currently pouring outside, WE NEED IT.
