I was looking at the extended forecast for my home water next weekend and high of 60 and low of 43 made me smile.

Most of the south facing hillsides are snow free now but the north facing slopes are still pretty covered with snow.

Next sunday should solve that.

There will be about 3-5 days of high water after the warm up and then optimal trout fishing will happen.

The weeds will be down and easy walking. The vegetation in the water will minimal also.

These are the times for sneaking up on large trout!!!
