Stream I choose was wide open, shelf ice breaking off and floating downstream made later day water too cool. Tricked a couple early, then nada. Did see fish all over the stream, not just in a couple deep pools. Fished three spots, always company, but if they went up, I went down, and vice versa. Had comments about my upstream/downstream signs on the truck. Very helpful on those busy early days. Saw a nice eagle and got a good workout wandering the banks. That snow crust makes my attempts at stealth mode pretty funny. I scared a shit-load of fish....good sign for later excursions. Did see two in the 16-18" range, biggest I've ever seen in those stretches. About a 350 mile roundtrip, and 4 hours fishing = tired old guy!

Right there with ya. I put in 700 miles this weekend (Sussex-Mpls-Viroqua-Dodgeville-Sussex). First of many trips I'll make to the DA this year. Hope my aging Altima is up to the challenge.

Cmac! my friend and I also ended up with a 500 mile round trip! Sounds like we all put on some miles. Looking at some of the comments maybe 500 isnt so bad Blink
