After last weekends dumping came a drastic temperature swing and resultant mid week thaw. The river exploded from 1700cfs to marginally shy of 4000cfs. The rise certainly initiated some movement in the ranks and alot of fish pushed up. There are plenty of players to convince and the next couple of days should prove to be interesting. Today was a struggle with the biting cold and strong winds but it certainly was nice to see the river beyond her banks and gin clear. It never ceases to amaze me how much water these systems can manage without blowing out and becoming unfishable. The game is about to change from winter fishing to the spring blitz. It should get interesting as the big girl starts to drop and the fresh pushes make their way up river.
