2013 Weather Completely Insane

Recommended Posts

This is insane. The weather this year has put most of us guides so far behind the 8 ball it is unreal. We lost 90% of our Spring break business and this week for most of us has also been a total "Wash."

Today the normal for Blue Eye for April 2nd. is 68 and 43.

Setting here tying some flys and looking at the lake temperatures plummet by the moment it is 34 air temp and spitting ice, rain and big flakes of snow.

Next two days look pretty much the same with lows in the high 20's to low 30's and highs maybe 40.

Probably be cursing the heat in a month or two, but right now "I be more than Chillin."

At least we have water this year. Plus I saw my first serviceberry in bloom this morning. A cool wet summer would be fine with me. But I'm not a guide. Sorry for your lost business.

Weather of course is part of this business, but I cannot in 23 years now ever remember it being this cold, rainey, windy for so long. Even the high water events didn't bother us too much, but this has left a mark. I guess thats why the normal is 68 and 44, not 28 and 40 like its been.

I'm ready to go fishin. Good Luck

I was checking the long term this morning and it appears that in a couple more days it will be over, finally!

I haven't seen a serviceberry yet, but I haven't been out in a couple of days.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

They are out down here along with the ornamental pears and the plums. Boy have they been fooled

Fished like a mad man with my Brother Dave, sister and nephew coming down over the weekend. Happy to sit in the house and tie some flies up today.

A Little Rain Won't Hurt Them Fish.....They're Already Wet!!
