These warmer temps over the past few days have been helping to open up a few areas of ice on the local streams, though it's a far cry from spring yet. Not quite warm enough for me to hit my trusted spot. Fish don't seem very active yet. I've gone down to the Locks at work during my lunch break, to check for any signs of white suckers. Nothing yet, though the tundra swans are honking down there to beat all hell.
I'll just be more patient and wait a few more weeks until we get a bit more runoff, then the action on the streams will pick up a bit more. Until then, I've got some tullibee to chase after. All this melt has got to be good for something. I sense the tullibee bite will be picking up here any day now. Yum.
