super bowl

Yesterday was the superbowl so i figured that it would be a good day to go fishing. We planned it a while ago and the weather was supposed to be mild around 38. That was last week, yesterday morning i got up at 5:30 to a couple of inches of snow. I drove 1.5 hours to gary's house in the snow and fog. Went for some food, and drove another hour to cheeseman canyon. The low temp driving in was 18 the high was 23. We saw a herd of elk driving in so took that as a good omen. We hiked about 1 mile over and down the mountain to get to the river. It was really beautiful walking that steep ice covered trail with all of our fishing gear, so peaceful and serene. We fished hard for about 4 hours without a hint of a bite, five casts then clear the ice from the guides. It snowed the whole time, the hike out was easier since the icy trail now had 6 inches of fresh beautiful peaceful serene snow on it. Driving home we stopped for a bio break and got stuck in a snow drift. The ice was packed in around the axels and the truck would not budge. Luckly a guy pulled us out only after breaking his tow chain because we were so stuck. On the way home we saw a herd of mule deer and took that as a good omen. Finally made it home around 6, I can not wait to do it again next year.
