    Hi Larry.
    Nice Pics of some Beaut Looking Water it's good to see you all had an enjoyable Trip & caught some nice Fish even with The inclement weather .
    Those Mirror Carp Have really big Scales & are Slimy as I've caught them over here as well as Their mates The European Carp.
    I like where you had your Tent Parked however The Cabin looked a better proposition.
    Probably The reason Rod doesn't wear a hat is he has more Hair than The Rest Of Us.

    Not really, we were in Casper, trapped in a cabin and just had to get outside. You should see some of the winter wx that Kelly and his sons fish in over in Idaho, definitely puts us in the amateur category.

    Rod just emailed me a photo of the big fish he caught, this fish has been living pretty close to the feed trough, it was certainly the biggest fish of the trip:

    Awesome fishing report! Looks like a great trip and lots of fun in the snow. Fishing in bad weather is some of the most rewarding fishing there is.

    Good to have you guys back Larry,

    I'm very much aware of how things change overnight. I got down to Anchor Point Sunday, Monday morning was seasonable with the morning low in the upper 30's and the high around 2:00 PM at 44*. I fished from daylight until 2 without a bump and so called the day and made a plan for Tuesday. Rain came Monday evening and pounded the area overnight hard.

    With howling winds and sheets of rain coming down Nancy decided to stay at the motel and dropped me off at 7:30 AM. That's about half an hour before daylight at this time. I started down river and even in the dark could see that there was about twice as much river as the day before. I fished a long run in the dark to dawn light and began to wonder what color the water was. By 8:15 you could clearly see that things were up and with color so I walked to the top of the run and gave it one more shot even though the river was muddied. No bump, no fish but a cell phone so I called for an extraction.

    So the score between the giant steelhead of The Anchor River and I remains the same, I have been defeated by weather or water conditions on almost every trip but I'm planning one more before the months end.....................

    The waking up to a heavy snow and drop in temperature hits you pretty good too but at least your water levels stayed good. I'll take snow over hard rains any day, you guys made the best of it for sure.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Yes, that was quite the storm, glad we had rented a cabin when it hit, felt sorry for the guys camping out on the mile!
