Hard to believe it’s December with days like this. If the river wasn’t closed it would have fished.  For now, she is having a long winter nap.  The Upper Swan is one of the few larger rivers in the state that closes with the smaller streams from the end of Nov through the third Saturday in May. All of the other major rivers we fish are open year round and provide some angling options throughout the winter and spring months.

The weather is calling for a high of 50 over on the Missouri this Saturday. I thought we were supposed to be having another BIG snow year? Put the skis back in the garage for another couple weeks and go fishing I guess.
