Fished the main near the house....Burrrr!!! :( It was cold enough that it wasn't very fun! Side drifted for about 3 hrs, my youngest was just about as into holding a fishing rod this morning as I was holding onto the oars! :D We had a nice 10-20 mph wind coming up the river to really add a chill to things! Muddy, cold water to boot, pretty bleak! We did find one fish though....not overly exciting for the most part, I think most of the smart fishermen stayed home! Oh well, 1st time out since I had the carb rebuilt on the driftboat motor....ran ok, mostly an excuse to check it out anyway.

We dodged the bullet here on the upper Rogue River. Dead calm (occasional very light breeze), degree or two above freezing and snowed like heck yesterday. River was in perfect condition for even us year-round fly flickers.

Not too cold (new thermals) to fish. Too cold to catch? Nada on the Wilson.

Dang! You aren't kidding...I only lasted about an hour and a half this morning before my aching hands (even had some thin gloves on) had me call it quits. Too bad; I was frustrated at my wimpiness as I saw two fish surface, but left before giving myself a better chance at some action.
