I was able to finally get out and prowl the water for some trout. The frigid cold front has finally subsided and the ice receded enough to find a little open moving water. The wind was blowing with a frigid chill but the plentiful sunshine countered the gusts and made for some quality time outdoors. The water was a bit off color but I thought that would be a helpful development. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a single hit today. With the temperatures still in the 20's I got to fight icy guides, but no fish. Perhaps the cold snap has them a bit too lethargic to chase the bugger. Hopefully with a few more relatively warm days to come the trout will get active again soon.
