Warm air has been spilling over the Eastern slopes for just over a week. A few of the lakes that were iced over have shed the thin layer of ice that has formed and we have been given a reprieve! I hope you did not pack your rods away. We had stored the boat but Karen and I decided that it was well worth the effort to unearth the pram and get back out on the water. We broke out a few shrimp fly patterns and got back to it! I even fly fished in shorts yesterday. What a bonus. Looks like the weather will become winter like by the weekend. Hope you are able to enjoy these last few warm weather days, at least until the next chinook!
