    I wanted to fish all three days, but looks like Saturday is going to be rain/snow all day. Sunday is mid 30's but really windy (13-25mph). Looks like Monday is the only viable day in the low 40's and moderate wind.

    I haven't fished in three weeks and need to go. So if Monday is all I can get, then I'll be fishing it. Might do Sunday too if I feel like putting up with the wind, but will have to stay upriver. A little concerned about possible icing on the ramps in the mornings with overnight temps in the teens.

    Good luck to all who go!

    I agree, the weather looks bad for the weekend. JW and I are trying to get a trip up for next weekend, Fri, Sat, Sun. Hope the weather improves.

    Thank Goodness my daughter is in a Vollyball Tournement Sat and Sun. Being a dutiful Dad, I will be there cheering her on and not freezing my butt on the river. For thems that go, have fun and be safe. I fell overboard on Dec 13 1972 and can tell you from first hand experience, it was awful.

    If you can remember the exact date from 35 years ago, then yes, it must have been a pretty awful experience!

    I'll be out for a few hours today, the boat landing is a weak place to fish but last weekend a couple guys caught a fish that was worthy for being "large" at the boat landing......not really large to the BOC standards.
    If I go fishing and I don't expect to catch anything which is now everytime I go. I practice my casting. I just bought a 10ft pole and that's almost twice my height so I can't cast it worth a crap.
    Good luck to fishing don't freeze.....

    How'd it go today man? Catch any from the bank? I know how it is being stuck to the bank, however, it makes that first boat that much sweeter!
