Oh, No!

You mean they have a CLOSED SEASON out there? Here, it's open on the tribs year round! (Of course, Sept. to May is the best time - except when the deep snows and "-0" temperatures get here. Used to go out then, but fighting frostbite, frozen fingers, feet, lines and guides are a little too much for me in my old age.

But I leave the crowded streams for the weekends. I go shooting, instead. Then, during the week, when I have the streams to myself and a few other retired guys, go out. In fact, shot some Sporting Clays yesterday - today my son visited, but tomorrow I'll be on the streams, HOPEFULLY catching a few.

Oh, well, Jim, you'll have "half pounder" season before you know it. Always something to look forward to!

Plus, I gotta shed some of those "winter pounds", dammit!

Bob

All our Michigan rivers are blown way over the banks.

First too cold and no flowing water, now too wet and too much flowing water.

Mother nature sure has an odd sense of humor...

Perfect time

to tie a few more of those high-and-dirty-water flies. Some of the rivers are still a day or two from cresting, but some are already on their way down. By the weekend my line will be wet! Good hookin' to all...

...and don't forget that the fish aren't in the same spots as in the fall or later on.

Same here -- a bit depressing.

Hoping for the best in a couple of weeks.

Thumbs up Snigger, snigger ....

the Rogue is just kicking into high gear!! for winter steelheading. Better yet, Bob M and I were chatting about Charity Clinic 'stuff' a couple of evenings ago .. and it appears the Spring Kings are already heading up river!!

Sigh ... a wealth of riches.

Fred, beware of karma....

....what goes around comes around.

Your habit of rubbing stuff in the faces of others may someday turn around and bite you in the hiney.

They have lots of small steelhead on the Rogue per all of my INTEL nice little pretty gals and fellows under 10 lbs. God would I love 50+ degree temps though for late winter and spring steelhead.

He is the one that started this thread.

Hey, Fred...

You get too "soft" living in conditions like that! That way, you don't appreciate how good frostbit fingers feel as they are thawing out, and keeping time to the music with your knees knocking together! Hell, when was the last time you didn't even know your feet were there for a couple of hours???

Besides, it makes for a good "excuse" for the occasional belt of "anti freeze"! That way, the WCTU doesn't yell too much!

BobK:hehe:
