|Just got in from an outing on the Snake. The day won’t go down in the record books, but it was nice to get out and wet a line. I expected conditions to be fairly lousy, but I didn’t expect ice to be floating in the main channel…. although it makes sense. After walking a good mile up river with Sage, I post-holed my way to the bank and rigged up my rod. I opted for the usual, a double nymph setup with a twist of weight. The floating ice made it challenging to get a good drift in the fast, deep current. Every once in a while though things would work out and I’d feel a bump on the end of my line. After about an hour, I reeled up; content with the 2 cooperative fish that found their way to my hand.
