Another forum I used to belong to (not fishing related) used to be real big with members maintaining journals. I think its a great way to not only learn about each other but also could provide us some serious insight into the areas and waters we all call home...

As for many, spring came late in my area. We had a serious amount of snow this winter and when the melt finally came a lot of the rivers remained high and muddy for the first couple of weeks.

My next post does contain fish and will come in quick succession as it already has transpired. I hope to catch you up on my latest adventure and also do a good job maintaining this thread for the 2014 season.
