Went fishing in the ice and snow...

The first day of the year was pretty cold… single digit temperatures (f) and about -13 celcius was the coldest I’ve ever experienced. The lake was frozen over but water was spilling over the dam. Water temps below dams are often warmer than true freestone streams. Drew and I had a few fish come to a hot orange sow bug nymph and then with rising fish around me - I just had to tie on the trusty Griffiths knat and get amongst them. I thought they were going to be easy but the fish and ice kept me on my toes. Several small browns to the hand were welcome before the temperature saw us heading for the truck heater and hot coffee!

What a fun day! Ice and rainbows to welcome in the new year…
