It’s April, and here in the Rockies that means anything can happen within just a minute or two. Right now it’s snowing on I-25 between Monument and Castle Rock. It’s been cool and rainy as well. I understand this is one of the times of year here in Colo. that changes are happening. That’s alright with me……..but, when the wind won’t quit, and it rips, literally rips my flag pole holder that is screwed into one of the pillars on my front porch, with four screws, that’s getting to be too much. And not only my flag and holder was on the ground this morning, but a few of my neighbors as well. Only one neighbor still had their flag up.
With winds like what we have been getting here lately, how can a person fish? I swear I need a 10wt rod just to roll cast a short distance. Maybe I should ask someone in Wyoming how they do it. I’m just glad it’s not 24/7, but it’s enough to drive you off the river or make you not want to go fish.
Let Mother Nature do her thing, choose wisely, and accept the fact that some days are just “unfishable” unless you’re just trying to prove a point. 10wt? Those are a bitch to cast in no wind, much less high winds. That’s how we do it in Wyoming, and Montana, and Utah, and . . .
I’ve got 5 new inches this morning at Flaming Gorge. Some fell sideways. It’ll melt. The trout will rise. More water. All is good.
