We Dodged The Snow Bullet

If you've been watching the news about the West Coast, you've noticed that we had a good storm go through Sunday & Yesterday. Wind, rain, snow. The weather guessers said the snow level was going to be 4000', but you know how that goes. Well, it rained both days. Several inches, in fact the pond (our pond, no fish) is the fullest I've seen it in a couple of years.
Although I have to tell you, it tried snowing yesterday afternoon. You know that time period when you see the flakes start dropping in the midst of the rain, but that was it.

Now that that's over, I can get back to fishing. Looks like Thursday, since I have a doctor's appointment first thing, I'm going to stand in the river waving a stick and see what happens. That would be the American River. I understand there are some small Steelhead (yes, I'll keep trying) still swimming around, so I'll swing a few flies and see what happens. Can't pass up a chance when it presents itself.

Trout season opens for creeks and rivers on Saturday the 24th. I have previous plans for that day, but plan to hit a creek or two on Sunday. More about that later.

Till the next adventure.

  1. Seems that the weather still in not very stable. Good luck on thursday, and hope that your visit to the doctor is just for a quick check.
