Normally by late April we’ve seen some warm weather.  The long cold spring we’ve had this year has all our rivers in great shape and fishing well a bit later that normal. By now we are often committed to the Missouri River if we want to do some river fishing as our local rivers are usually coming up and not reliable. It looks like we might get another several days of stable flows before our next warming trend kicks out some low level snow.  They are calling for temps approaching 70 for a couple days this weekend and that could be the end of it for a while. You just never know how the weather will play out in the spring. We do know there is lots of snow laying around that needs to melt. We should see a bunch of smaller lower elevation lakes start to open up after the warm weekend. That will certainly help fill the void once the rivers goes out. The next warm afternoon should see some solid dry fly fishing with skwalas and March browns. Get it while you can…
