|Hello friend. It's good to be back.|
The water temperature is still pretty frigid and the few carp that have made it out of their winter holding water onto the flats (only pre-spawn males) are still a bit sluggish.
Fortunately, a few willing players were holding right up against the shoreline in about a foot of water, which made for great sight casting.
At one point, I noticed a sizeable v-wake heading towards a creek outlet. I cast my fly ahead and to the left of the wake and the wake shifted course directly towards my fly and "BAM!" Damn, that was fun.
One thing that always amazes me about Blackfoot Reservoir is the number of living organisms the impoundment supports. Wildlife sightings today included sandhill cranes, pelicans, a beaver and a golden eagle.
More to follow...
