Moving Water In January
The warm snap has really opened up the local river and I threw on the waders to get out and explore the structure and see if any fish might be tempted into biting. I was out for about two hours working my way upstream. I saw signs in the snow and ice that others had been along this section too. Hopefully they found some trout. I was unable to move anything today. With the impending arrival of a cold air mass in the valley I felt like it might be my last chance to fish for a while. I can't remember seeing this much open water in January before. It won't last but it certainly helped out with some of my cabin fever.
