Post Storm Trip

The big snow storm that hit us over the weekend has finally subsided. Roads are open again and temperatures reached the 50's today making for a tempting evening worth a few casts after work. I started with the standard setup (PT/Midge combo) and managed to land some nice rainbows with a couple that were surprisingly plump piglets. Some of the fish have really put on some size out on the plains lakes this season. I am looking forward to a bit of warming this week in the forecast as the shallows on the far side of the lake in two of the bays were iced over. I am not ready to have the hard water season start just yet. Just an evening trip like this however, and I feel recharged after the long weekend indoors.
