Nice,

What was the air temp when you were there? Right now you need a few more layers if intending to fish for more than a little while. I was to go for 3 days beginning on black Friday but backed off because of single digits and highs in the 20's.

Is it a spring creek or just lots of springs entering?

My thoughts exactly. I am getting soft and I usually like to wear a jacket where there is 3 inches of snow on the ground.

And thanks for sharing those very nice pics Poke Em.

It was actually warm this weekend. Highs in the 30's. Up to 2' of snow on the ground in places. It's not really spring fed, it's just high-gradient enough that it largely remains unfrozen. Water temp was probably around 32į.

In the warmer months, I don't have much time for tying in between work and fishing.

I love winter because there'll be stretch of days that are too cold, and I stay in to tie new patterns, etc. and then there'll be a warm day in the week to try them out.

Then spring comes and I get to use all the 'tried & proven' flies that were tied during the winter season.

No whining here. I fished a small creek nearby today. It was sunny and 68 degrees. That's a hot day in Alaska in June!
