You can't do anything about the weather...

This past weekend was a long weekend here in BC, an event marked by a 36 year tradition of my Dad and I going to our favourite Cariboo Lake. Some years it is great, some years it sucks - that is fishing.

The usual deciding factor is when the ice comes off, which is normally somewhere in the first 2 weeks of May - as the lake is about 4000' in elevation. Ice off and the onset of the turn-over are critical, before it turns it is deadly good, once it turns you are done for a few weeks, until the oxygen levels stabilize the fishing is way off.

The ice came off at the incredibly early date of April 24th, we were ere looking forwad to unbelievably good chironomid fishing. But alas, we did not not count on a curve ball from Mother Nature

As we hit the lake it started to snow! That is bad, but not too bad so we toughed it out - no fish! Dad got really cold and didn't want to fish, it didn't help as a car accident took out a power pole and knocked out the electric heat in the cabin - so he was cold anyway!

Here is a shot of what Dad could see out of the cabin window (there is a lake out there!

Okay, it was so bad and so cold that we decided to pack up the boats Sunday night so as to get an early start Monday - definitely no more fishing!

Wouldn't you know what we were greeted with when we crawled out of bed...
