We were closed again today. You all will not have to worry about dodging me on the rivers this summer as much I guess. We are closed again tomorrow :cry: Decided that I would go 'ice fish' some. Wasn't a big catching trip but some interesting scenery. Here's a bunch of pics. What do you all think?

Judy and I walked 1/2 a mile today, just for exercise. I made some comment about having friends that would out fishing in this, and Judy didn't believe me.

Heck, if I had a stream like that within easy driving distance, I'd have been out there too. Nice pix (ok, 1 or 2 are a little out of focus.) I can see several runs that should produce with a weighted nymph and a good drift....

With a damn like that you should try doing some trapping while your out fishing that stream.

Brad, I'm now too old to fish in those conditions. Once upon a time I used to fish with ice in my beard/mustache, and rub the ice off my line after every second cast. No more.
Nowadays, I'll just wait for better weather. The trout will be there (and more willing) when the weather improves. I'm sitting in the living room with a nice warm fire watching the weather outside, with no particular desire to go out fishing presently. :D

That looks downright chilly. Reminds me of day last last January when we hiked a couple miles back into a stream and found this:

It took me a couple of times looking at this photo to pick out the angler on the ice...that really helps with the scale of the ice. Wow!

It's simple... Just wait for the ice to get real solid, drive out on it and dig out the wax worms and corn borers!
