    I actually rolled my car over driving out to the LT about a decade ago. The wind filled snow into a ditch to the point that looked like a flat pullout. As I went to use the pullout to make a u turn, over I went. Slow speed. Me upside down, dog sitting on the inside of the roof. By happenstance some buddies were driving over snow with jeeps set up with huge snow driving tires. They yanked me out and pulled me upright and back home I went! Be careful if you go!

Surprisingly it wasn't that crowded. I ran into another guy and that was it. Great color to the water with a slight green tint. Its cold though... I took a temp reading and it was 41 but the fish seem much more active than a few weeks ago. Didn't see any skwallas today but lots of winter stones, BWO's, and a few crays.

    Worked on my high stick game close to the shore in softer water. Got one of the nicer rainbows I've landed this year. It spit up a cray and a worm while I netted it. You can figure what I was using the rest of the day....

    Nice bow! The river was quiet because pyramid was so damn busy! Good to see all our trout friends happy with all the water once again. But quite scary to see the snow melting so fast in March.

    Thanks, that makes sense about the pyramid thing. Personally its not my thing so I try and spend most of my fishing moments on moving water. River is in very nice shape. Color was good and fish were very healthy. Be careful out there though. No need to get very wet as fish were holding near edges and in deeper softer water.

    I heard East Walker has been cranked up to 944 CFS. LT is running close to 1k cubes as well. Those levels are just not fishable nor safe when running that high. Personally I like the EW in the 200-250 range and LT about 150. Could be a long summer before we see those levels.

    Those levels pushing 1k are plenty safe if your not an idiot.
    Just stay out of the big water as one should on the big T.
    The fish still have to eat. Just be careful like you said.

    Morgan, key word being "idiot" Water makes some people do stupid things. Let me retrieve that $2/fly. Oops. Slip. But yeah for the seasoned angler you are fine. I also fish solo most of the time so that goes into my feedback on here. You have to use a little more caution when you don't have that buddy save your arse.

    Fish def eat and in high flows that they do. A full menu of worms, crays, baitfish, stones.... All the big stuff.

    Not complaints here though. I will be out on the water exploring. Spring can be the best opportunity to get that trophy fish.
