    Well...I've had enough of this cold, wet and crappy weather. I've checked my
    fishing gear and cleaned my tackle boxes about ten times now. It looks like we may get some decent weather next week and I'm going to be going somewhere. Roosevelt, Patagonia, Parker Canyon, Cluff Ponds or anywhere, just as long as I get away. I haven't been fishing for so long that I will probably have to "learn how" again. Looking at 70+ temperatures for next week, so get out if you can and Good Luck........Rick

    Rick,

    If you are tired of the cold than you definately best steer clear of Northern AZ. I had mentioned about going ice fishing....well, the ice was about 10 inches thick. I took pics, but haven't had a chance to post them. I also was not able to fish for very long.

    Ultimately I did get to go ice fishing in Arizona. It is cold up here for sure and I don't think that you would enjoy it here much.

    Good luck on fishing and let us know how you do.

    i think that the folks on Lake Powell will appreciate all the wet cold weather they can get, if the lake is still as low as it was last time i was there.

    I hear you on that James.......Powell, Mead, Havasau are all way down. We thought that El Nino was going to bring us some big rains this winter. But, so far it has been all wind and bluster. We have a big front coming through today, maybe something will happen.

    One thing that I hope for is that with all the snow that Colorado has been getting maybe Powell, Mead, and Havasu will do okay.

    The areas that I am really worried about are Bartlett, Roosey, and the other Arizona waters. There has been little moisture in the state so far this winter.

    Shawn....I was awed by your post and a little worried. Man, you really need to get your boat wet and feel some spray on your face. Drop a line or two in the water and see that line suddenly ripping off our reel. If this doesn't happen soon you will probably be like me and start going into Basha's and hanging around the fresh fish display, just for the aroma. Hang in there buddy, we don't have long to go...........Rick

    I finally got my boat in the water again. My Bro and I hit Patagonia on Wed. Hit the lake about noon and went looking for bluegills. About 4 pm we tied up at one of our hot spots. No luck. We tried all kinds combinations with live and cut bait. About 8:30 we were getting pretty frigid, so we hung it up. The flatties had lock jaw. It felt great to be out looking again. We think our next trip we be to Roosevelt to try for crappies, Good luck to all.
