Re: A Sure Sign That I'm Almost Ready To Fish;
That's one of the beauties of living here in Southern Oregon with the Rogue River almost at my door step. River's open to fishing 365, save for the odd days off in the winter when the flows are too high (for fly fishing). Where to fish could be less than a 5 minute drive, or it could be an hour to the top end of the 'Wild and Scenic' section. Or over to the Coast to the Chetco in December-January in the motor home. Fished that river since 1984; know most of the rocks on a first name basis.
A 'seriously cold' day in the winter will be in the 'teens, a 'seriously hot' day would be 105 (very odd off's).
A good place.
