Very cold and windy with frozen guides, was glad my day ended quickly. ;D

Conditions were good today with some fair catches reported. I was able to find a couple beaching a hatchery doe that was released and lost another.

Light pressure, maybe high gas prices are having an effect on those coming from a distance. It is even 134. 9 here in Chilliwack. ??? ::) Also at htis time of year a number of anglers become fished out. ;D ;D

Fred's boys are most likely getting ready for the show in Abby, they will catch up I am sure. Post your question on their facebook page and ask them to update.

Its raining here now. I notice a little more color this afternoon than at first light.

Water conditions were very good again this morning, I was able to hook one but my leader broke during one of the many aerials that took place for the 2 minutes I had it on. Should have changed the leader after playing some fish on it yesterday. :-[

Pressure seemed light to me and only saw one fish taken and heard of another during the 2 hours I was out. May go out this afternoon.

Wanted to go out today but had to go downtown to drop off client's RRSP contributions.

With the snow this morning, it took me 3 hours to get downtown!!!!!

By the time I was done, it was too late to drive another 90 minutes to the Vedder.

I am dying to go out to fish!!!!!!!

River was excellent this morning but I thought it colored some as the morning went on but was still fishable when I left at 11.

Some nice catches reported, not a lot of anglers out as high gas prices are keeping some anglers home I think, especially those that have to drive any distance.

Many thanks, Chris, for the info. The gas price sure hurts us with the long drive from Vancouver. On the second thought, I use this as an excuse to drive out that way for the cheaper gas prices  ;D.
