The snow wasn’t as bad as the news channel led us to believe.  We’ve had worse snow in April.  They nailed the wind forecast though.  The snow melted yesterday but it is 22 degrees this morning.  It looks like we’ll be on the unpleasant side of freezing until Saturday afternoon.  We should hit 50 degrees then and things look decent all week.

The water temps dropped a bit with the runoff and air temp so if you are fishing today nymphs and streamers fished slow will be your best bet.
