Yep, and with the water temperatures in unison, no trout today.
Back to the smallie grind, except no wading this time. We used Scott's low pride Hyde to 'drift the river in style."
Here's what we learned today.
- I am the UNDISPUTED rock bass bassmasters grand champion
- Nate likes Maxima, and doesn't like Scott's boat position from the stern
- Scott likes to row, and doesn't care about what boat position Nate likes
- Even Smallmouth think its just TO DANG hot right now
WE REALLY need some precipitation right now. I heard through the grapevine from a reliable source that a few trout rivers are at their LOWEST recorded marks in HISTORY, of all time. That could spell disaster for some of the streams that have a harvest as all but a few of the largest fish will be "easy pickings" in the deepest holes in the river.
Don't get me wrong, I'm "ECSTATIC" that we have probably had the absolute BEST dry spring for grouse broods in the past 20 years, but everyone involved in water care or preservation is starting to press the panic button, and rightfully so.
