Thread: Winter Time.. And The Livin' Is Easy

  1. #1

    Default Winter Time.. And The Livin' Is Easy

    Amazing weather gracing us here in the DA right now.. Jan 1st was C&R opener for Minnesota.. Needless to say so far I had been 0-3... Hopes were getting low... So I headed to one of my favorite streams in hopes it would break my skunk..

    Arrived at the spot to see that not a soul has fished it yet.. Thick ice shelves lined the stream with narrow lanes left open where the water was fast enough... clear as can be.. could see bottom of most holes without needing even the shades...

    Overall was a good outing.. Caught 4 fish(2 brown.. 2 brook) over the course of about 4 hrs.. and now i'm sore.. It's nice to be first.. But it sucks blazing the trail through all the snow..

    Those are beautiful pictures. You're making me homesick.

    I love winter season in MN. Too bad I live in NC now. I was fishing one of my favorite streams in Jan two years ago. Came back in March and could still see my old tracks in places and nobody else's.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Haha, I recognize that spot! Didn't we both hang up around a half dozen flies in that last summer?

    I don't see that vine hanging around anywhere. Did you cut it down or something before you fished the run (I've thought about doing it many times!)
