Turkey hunting and trout and bass fishing are underway! The cool Spring may bring benefits later in the year by keeping what little snow we have on the mountains and available for runoff. This time of the year there is no need to be an early riser when fishing. So there is plenty of time to catch some sleep and some fish!

It wasn’t the end of the world, but it was a good outing. Fishing was slow: two strikes and landed one nice Brown Trout on a copper john nymph.
