    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.
