Well it's been in the low to mid forties with some rain the past few days and the snow is slowly melting. The lake is now starting to open up around the edges but there is still plenty of ice out there. Even though we can't get on right in front of our house there are 2 trucks and a couple of bobhouses still on the ice this morning. I'll be surprised if the houses are out there by the end of the day.
Have tied a lot of flies for trout and trolling for salmon this winter so this weekend I turned my attention to the bass. Tied up a couple poppers, Clouser minnows and I few I made up with rabbit fur. Looking forward to trying them out.
It's now 19 days till salmon season opens up around here. Would be nice if the ice is gone by then so the boat will be in but I doubt it this year. Will have to fish the open water around the docks till it goes out.
Here a few photos of this weekend flies.
