I should really pay more attention to space weather.

I just changed phones and didn't have them enabled yet or I'd have been out earlier yesterday. I really caught the tail of the best conditions.

What happened to spring? I have a day off and suddenly it's 43 and raining.

Still went fishing but it wasn't as fun.

Down to 39 up here already.

I'm hoping that we don't get a downpour before Saturday and have the stocked trout flushed down the creek into the river before the start of HS season.

You usually don't see this big of an expansion of high winds in the mountains. May see a ton of power outages coming.

Any luck?

It was pretty rough.  Just a few small rainbows and one decent brown that was either native or been in there for a while. Went to South Toe. It rained harder than I expected and the water got dingy. I don't usually fish with live bait but I expect people who did had better luck. Caught the brown on a Rapala brown trout minnow. More exciting than worm fishing. 


The wind didn't get bad till around lunch
