5/9 - 5/10

I spent two days fishing with Tom and Sam this weekend. We fished both llakes and rivers during this time and did pretty well overall. The lake was pretty slow but the fish we did catch were pretty large. The river that we fished was still clear and was actually quite cold. The water temp was 38 in the morning but rose to 51 in the afternoon. the fish were still held up in their winter holes and were only receptive to slow nymphing.

Runoff is Near

The fishing has been great recently with both the snake and the green fishing very well. Some big fish are coming out of both rivers but with the warm nighttime temps and all the rain we've been getting the rivers may not stay fishable for long. We might have up to a week before the rivers become unfishable but i'll be sure to post once runoff gets underway.
