For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

In these last weeks it has bee very hard to find soft water, that is water that is open. The nights have been in the single numbers and the day not much better with highs at about 20. To go with these cold temps we have had snow events which have put a white blanket down a blanket that will be around for weeks. I'm not complaining though for I see it as insurance we'll have water flowing nicely in our streams. A good snow pack with a slow thaw will put the melt into the water reserve.
Yesterday Jeanette and I took a drive to see if we could find some open water. This was going to be a walking, and photo session, no fishing. After checking a few places we finally found some water that was open and could be fished if one wanted to.
The waters in these streams hit the bell as far as clarity. Along with blue skies and the crisp air it was a winter scene to top all.
A familiar run. This looks wonderful. I guess we picked a good day to walk. The forecast is for a "nor'easter" Thursday with some hefty snow totals............ Back to the vise.
There is actually naked ground on the right, nature will fix that soon enough.
