Record Temps for February

 Fridays record highs of 70* was just what I needed to get out on some new water.  This was a stream I had never caught a trout on and I hadn't fished for close to a year.
 The temps were a little cooler in the shade of the bluffs
 spring rains and high water cut the banks

 washing tons of sediments each year into these cool water streams.
 Did I say cool?  It was down right cold but what else do you do when you forget to pack your fishing boots.
 There was still ice along the northern slopes of the valley but this spot all right.

 Right where he should have been.  The perfect cast and a twitch or two and splash there he was.
Another stream another trout.  Catch and release for another day.
