Default It's officially winter to me!

Every year my winter starts with my 1st turns on the mountain and a visit to some tailwaters for winter fishing.

Generally this starts around Thanksgiving, and I had the opportunity to fish two tailwaters over the holiday week!

Although the skiing wasn't that great...(two ski related deaths already in Colorado!) The fishing was great and I can't wait until it gets colder!

Anybody out there live for the winter like me? Don't get me wrong, I love summers but give me a cold winter day with the snow falling and I'm standing knee deep in a tailwater and I'm happy as a clam.

It's been oficially winter here for a while now. The river is a solid sheet of ice. They already have a few ice houses out. I have heard of guys already crossing 4 Mile Bay on 4 wheelers. No fly fishing for me till spring. Unless of course I go on vacation to a much warmer area.

Yes, it was -5 degrees here in Pinedale, WY this morning, it snowed about 4 inches yesterday. I had lots of chores to do around the house today, can't wait to get out and it the tailwaters.

Teens this morning, but supposed to warm to 40 during the day, we will see. If the winds dont pick up, I may try to hit the river today.
