2020 was a very unique year for everyone to say the least. Since I'm both working as a nurse and a fishing guide these days I decided to guide only in a very limited capacity last year. With the hospital as crazy as it was, the uncertainty surrounding what the guide season, and a young child I decided to only guide my return clients that have fished with me for many
years. In 2021 I'll be back to guiding as normal in addition to my working as a nurse. This will give me 3-4 days a week in which to guide this summer. I'm very excited to get back to guiding this year. I was surprised by how much I missed guiding despite getting in a lot more personal fishing time.
With more free time I was able to get out and fish a lot more. 2020 was an exceptional big fish year for me. I managed to catch more fish and more big fish in a year than I think I ever had. Our rivers and lakes are in exceptional shape courtesy of many years now in which we've had a great snowpack and plenty of water. Based on our current snowpack and how much it's been snowing already in February, I expect that 2021 will be just as good a fishing as last year was.
