Just look at atmospheric CO maps. Oct.-April it looks like we are all going to die. Then May and June gets here and it all goes away. It happens the same way every year.

If you believe it's caused by man then you need to ask YOURSELF a few questions. How many agricultural acres have you converted into year round cover? How many trees have you planted? What lifestyle changes have you made?

Talk is cheep.


This is how I see it but I was just giving you guys some shit with my post above.

That's called the annual carbon cycle...there is more land in the northern hemisphere, so every summer, the plants absorb some CO2, and release it when they die in the winter...the overall trend, despite the annual bumps, is upward.

The greenhouse effect is indisputable, so if you want to claim it's not humans causing the warming, you need to come up with a physical process by which increasing atmospheric CO2 by 40% would NOT cause warming. I'll wait.

I don't necessarily really care what causes climate change, but it makes no sense that people use the non-human element as a pass to continue to do things that are directly harmful to the environment.

The Madison chain of lakes is mostly really gross and it's not just because of father time or trends on earth. To not want to take steps to curb doing more harm, or to think it's fine to go back to the things that are known to cause harm to begin with (like the chemicals that seep into streams via mining) is mind blowing.

Heavy rain, sleet, snow and ice. Sounds like a good weekend to spend tying flies. At least the streams will get a good flushing.

Damn. Yet another winter/spring storm coming tomorrow to the Driftless Area:

This freaky weather has to be screwing up the normal spring bug hatches on local Trout streams. If the temperature shoots up like they are predicting we could be in for some runoff and flooding issues.

Looking like my plans for Saturday may need to shift closer to home.

Oh well... first (trout) world problems I suppose.


Dane County streams could definitely use the snow (precip).

Thought about jumping on my local stream yesterday after work during the snow but took a nap on the couch instead. Was a solid nap. Smile

Looks like the western edge of the state got dumped on.

I think we got maybe 3 inches here in Madison.

Will have to look at precip maps to determine weekend plans if any.

Definitely seems unlikely that I can go to Grant.

Grant's kind of hit or miss anyway with a limited amount of streams.

I'm curious to see how long the run off effects the streams. It's basically like 2-3 inches of rain, just not soaked into the ground.

The Wisconsin River and others up north are going to be a mess over the next several weeks I think.

I had a specific location that I was wanting to hit but it's not unusual to have to improvise on plans in the spring or early summer due to precipitation.

Some of my favorite places are in Grant, but I hit two of em just before the snow anyway so am good on those for a while.


What I don't want to do is fish local. Did that all through March (granted, to great results) and need to get away.

My guess is that the Sand County area will be a mess this weekend too as they got dumped on last week.


EDIT: Yeah... Sand Counties got smoked last week.
