We're having a lovely January day. Nothing major, no crisis, just a modest January day with snow showers and temps hovering around 30 degrees. Bass Lake was lovely, dark, and deep as I drove past this afternoon.
My wading boots are still in the truck bed after last Friday's trip to Rocky Ford Creek. And they'll stay there for my next trip. Which looks like it could be on Monday. Snow is to stop by then, it should be overcast and calm--and temperatures will again mysteriously top out over 40.
I'm still hoping for the river to thaw, and for the chance to swing for some steelhead, but some nice, fat Rocky Ford rainbows will do very nicely in the meantime.
