Regardless of the fish activity, today was quite a comfortable day. Could have even been just a bit cooler. Water temperatures this morning were recorded at 39 F approaching 45 F by the end of the day today. Don't let it fool you though. You still need your wool socks. But, you might be able to get away in a t-shirt. Reports from our anglers indicated a quieter day but nearly everyone was able to get a nice little piece of steel today. Definitely starting to see plenty of spawned out fish now, bee-lining it right for the lake. And they certainly don't waste time. Let the steelhead acrobatics commence. As if their brute power wasn't enough, now they'll really be throwing their weight around. Forecasts for the remainder of the week here leave us with some looming rain, which at this time doesn't seem like we will receive a great volume of rain. Many anglers asking what they might do with the water, given the forecast. I'd be a rich man if I had the answer to that question!
