Clint you sure are getting more than a fair share of springsteelhead action bud... good for you and thanks for the reports. Id like to hit the water with you once before the seasons over.

The forecast is finally looking like spring. Warm rain in the forecast for mid-late week... things will start changing soon. Probably gonna start seeing some small mouth staging up in the lower end... this season is definitely atleast two weeks behind... thank god for some warmer weather on the way

Windy as hell today glad I picked yesterday, although overall today was warmer.    I got some outside work done raking up a winters worth  of dog crap.   It is amazing what will go through the digestive tract of an 100 pound dog.    I may hit one day after work and Wednesday will be the last day before rain forcast  Thursday ad Friday.  Tomorrow looks like the best of day of the week, but I think I have some errands to run.  We will see.   I still want to make it up North for at least one day too.   Maybe I feel sick one day next week.......................
Finally it may be time to start weening from the Zone a bit, the  wife is in the mood  to try one of these things I go after.
Agreed last year at this time it was in the 70's.

With spring fish it is 90% being in the right place at the right time. 
 
Last year, April 8 was Easter, and my first dwarf iris bloomed, daffodils were nearly done and a lot of tulips were flowering, forsythia was starting to green up, but still showing some yellow.  This year, dwarf iris only started showing any new growth in the last week, crocus are still in flower, daffodils have not flowered, but soon, and tulips are not even showing flower stalks yet, forsythia are just budding. Definitely 2-3 weeks behind last year, but last year was also 3 weeks ahead of "norm."

Years back used to hit the Sr in the second to third week of April for my one Steel trip a year- some years Gangbusters some years Nada.
 Some years still has a bit of snow in the woods some were budding out pretty well.
 It was those Good ones with drops and some spawning still going on the kept me  on that schedule for about 25 years.
  The bad  years- well I just slept in and fished the lake late in the day into evening.
 Time changes a lot though- now with time to really get to know the river better than two day trips allowed can find Steel into May in most seasons.
 Still think this season is short of fish and will be a 'quickie spawn'---hope I'm wrong.

Clint, i was up there the other day and a guy said he had a few on... he was fishing with an eight foot fly rod strung with mono and cannonballs though... he had just come up from under the bridge... i wonder how he caught them?????lol...
RT- let me know ahead of time when you 'll be up again and i'll be sure to hook up with ya

Bear and gerry, good luck and have fun... hope the best for the weather gerry as that lake can turn in a matter of minutes... bear, maybe we'll finally grab that cold one we've been talking about for a year now...lol

Lucky, agree with ya about 2-3 weeks behind... with this warm rain coming the water might get even colder again before the real warm up as snow melt will be coming

Tuna... lurk on buddy...lol!!! Or should we say yeeehhhaaaa!!!!

Took a look at the Lake at Selkirk last week Andy- for about one minute.
 Wind had the Grindstone outflow pushed right back onto shore and the rollers were crashing.--Thats why I ended up throwing Crawlers in the Town pool -had intended to drift them in the outflow.  lol.
 Agree on the snow melt and temps- up in the woods its still thick in most places above Richland -was walking on over a foot of hard pack up there.

R-TEE, grindstone blew out pretty hard back in early march after that fluke 60 degree day we had followed by rain... the swamps and farm fields went from 12-18 inches to green grass in a matter of two days... the mouth got completely trenched out... i was down there a few days before that happened... wow did it change as it always does. It'll be next year probably when it flattens back out and pushes good water again unless we get some womping rain as its head waters are free of snow now

Re:Weather thread 2013/04/09 00:14:56 (permalink)
Was reading the generally poor reports from DSR lately and surprised to see some dropback action picking up a little bit today.= Clearly still not anything huge or big and well kinda more like a 'picky' report but it was the drops that got my attention. (real honest kinda reporting-kudos to the DSR folks )
   With what seems to be very cold water conditions makes me wonder bout that other theory-the one  bout daylight affecting behavior as well.
 Darn that river seemed COLD a coupla days ago. 
  Mean -know its about time --but did I mention  COLD water.   lol
 Just hope its the beginning of the beginning- not the end. Numbers numbers.

Water was cold enough to have me taking breaks every hour or so, yeah it's still cold.   Big issue is that we have had very  little rain this spring and what he have had has been a rain snow combo so still cold.  With the warm rains this week it should start to happen in #s
I caught 1 drop last weekend and all the others were fat but firm.  You know how sometimes you pick up a ripe female and any little squeeze will get eggs,  not alot of that.

We had fish spawning in I Creek in January, with the water in the 30's.  But we had bright fish coming in rock hard in early March.  I honestly have not had time to fish since April 1,and then for 1/2 day in the Finger Lakes, but if I get the taxforms typed up tonight I may get out tomorrow PM to walk,a nd I';ll bet there are still a few coming in.  They don;t all run at once ansd they don;t all spawn at once, although once they thin out it can be a lot of looking for a few hits.

Wow,  I was going to call in sick tomorrow but now...............       2k is too high  for me to go.   It is even blowing out up North  at over 1k which is where I probably was going to go.   Now this weekend up there.........

We had a pretty good thunder boomer last night and a down pour that was quick, but only a very light sprinkle for a few hours.   A friend went up to the tug last weekend and  3/4's or more of the pack is gone.  They said maybe  6 inches in the woods  places.   If the res was not busting at the seams  why 1650 and not 1000k.   Only time will tell.  I just hope they do not drain it again like last year

Clint, i was up there 3 weeks ago and there was five foot... thats athe lot of melt off if theres only six inches now
the res must be full and filling if theyre running 1650... id venture to say your brook trout streams may be blown out... if the rain continues its probably gonna get pretty ugly...

RT, Take a wild guess why im ing at ya....

Dime that info was not first hand, but a girl at work drove up there last weekend as her parents live up there and she grew up on there.  A friend who lives in Redfield said almost all her snow is gone.     The SNIRT  (snow,ice, dirt)  4 wheeler drive is  this weekend and alot of my buddies are going up so I will get a good report then.   Either way I would venture to guess there is enough snow up there to blow the river out with a good day of  rain.   My moving water fishing is done until this calms down a bit

IMHO-(not- always on target lol)
 Well- this is NOT the beginning of the end of this long Winter but the END itself.
 Might think any fresh ones left out there will finish coming in on this water .
   When the melt is over the waters will quickly  be back to normalcy and  with warming  temps IT will happen pretty quick.
 Hope to be proven wrong bout fish numbers but cant help believing IT will be fast .
 Kinda think about one week from now will be prime. Think the melt will be bout over and the Co. will have time to release  overage by then leading to ground and sun warmed waters..
  Have had some prime Spring Steel fishing fighting GNATS ( arugggh) and they are  about to happen.
  Checking the calender for a trip but the Political schedule is maddening.
  After that- its smallies-slappin UFZ waters for Atlantics- golf - grass cuttin -burnin meat and waiting for late August.

What I do is NOT golf- PGA guys plays golf- There seems no accurate  name for what I do- but do enjoy hitting my little  balls with a long metal stick while waiting for Fall fishing.

Golf is in many ways just like fishing.  Enjoyable one minute and frustrating as H--- the next.  One good fish or well played hole bring us back for more.  Striving for perfection is the downfall of many sane men.

About a week late RT the chiggers are out now,  I was swatting them on Saturday.   The peepers just started to peep.   If we get a nice warm day the black flies will be out in force.

Best explanation of the average golfer was in detective/mystery book. The main character was golfing and described the experience as duffing the ball most of the time; but every so often hitting a great shot, or playing a great hole. That's enought to keep the fantasy alive, that with just a little more practice I could be really good!
