As always, upon starting a new season, I have to take a trip to the river to do some observations.For those of you who did not have that opportunity, here are som pictures from last night.
After a period with lots of rain, the river increased a lot towards the season opening. It seems to have stabilized now, but as warmer weather is predicted into next week, it's expected that the snow melt will commence again. Therefore we cannot really say if the peak of the flood is reached or not. The water temperature was measured to be 4 degrees last night.
The positive side of these conditions, is that the first schools of big fish are given free passage up river, and are able to find their spots before the fishing commences for real.
For those of you who still haven't bought licenses for the summer, you will find out what is available by clicking here.
Tight lines, and stay safe!
