    I made it out for an hour this morning but no luck. The river was swollen and running fast. 60* today with thunderstorms and 34* with snow tomorrow. I love the midwest.

    Thumbs down Re: anybody doing any fishing?

    Bad case of 'Cabin Fever' yesterday so tossed a couple of 2handers in the Jeep's rod rack and Yellow Lab in back. Off to the Rogue for a bit of early Winter Run fishing.

    Drove up and did an instant 'Ah Ship!' Water flow was a tad on the high side (not enough to keep you from fishing) but the water clarity was a Woozer. Been ages since I've seen that section of the river 'Blown Out.' Visibility was maybe 18 to 24 inches.

    With a fly rod (at least the one's I had with me) a total waste of Petrol.

    Fished all morning yesterday...one rainbow about 2lb. They just weren't eating anything. But, there are more days to come.

    Not much opportunity to fly fish this time of year in our area, so I also get on the ice to catch fish.

    Unfortunately, the weather can't seem to decide whether it wants to be Winter or Spring. Yesterday hit 60 degrees and tomorrow we are expected to have a high of 13. So all equipment remains at the ready for whatever nature throws our way. My neighbors must think I'm crazy to see me lawn casting my fly rod in January.

    Lately the rivers have been floating icebergs. Something about having a nymph rig constantly re-enact the end scene from Titanic is enough to make this guy head back indoors and tie for Spring.
