Our snowpack is look’n good across the state. We like to see our snowpack at or above average, although it really doesn’t mean much until spring. Even then it really doesn’t mean all that much. A good snow pack certainly gives us better odds of avoiding warm water and hoot owl restrictions but it doesn’t do squat to help out the fire situation. It all really boils down to how the weather plays out during the spring and summer months. If it’s hot and dry all spring and summer, a big snowpack can turn into forest fires and stream closures. And vice versa, a low snowpack with a cool wet spring/summer can make for great fishing conditions and smoke free skies all summer. Bottom line is don’t sweat it. Book your day and hope for the best. That’s all you can do because we don’t know, only mother nature does.
