Ok guys, I know we all have been asking for rain lately, but who the heck asked for snow? C'mon man, step up. We won't punish ya we'll go easy....

J/J

Yeah, I just went on break to have a stogie. Man, it's white out there! End of April! I wouldn't mind rain, but man, snow??!? This will push us back again and the poor guys who dwell on visions of nothing but fishing will surely suffer! If you're one of those guys, well you're not alone. :'( I'm about to break into tears right now :'(! I understand that our good state needs moisture, but this cold of weather at this supposedly prime time of the year is just heart-aching. It's terrible to even think about it. Picture this in your mind: Water temperatures sink, all the bass begin to hide and forget about eating, wipers suddenly dissapear into thin... water(?) Crappies shut down like depressed high school girls with no date on prom night... Even the mighty yellow wiper (carp) descends to the midst of the deep. And all the metro area fishermen have left to catch are once again, like in February... Stocked trout..

Oh it's terrible, I can't take this anymore!!!!

The action at jerry creek reservoir#1 is here to stay. The west slope was cool, but not freezing cold like the east slope. Our highs have been mid 60's to low 70's, perfect for not raising or sinking the water temperature. Fishing for bass is good right now, but the walleye are delaying a bit in juniata. I'm still debating whether to hit it or not, since it, like jerry creek, is no body contact, you can't boat on it. There are some big A$$ rainbows in there though, probably average as big or bigger than anywhere in the state for a lake, although there aren't a high population of them. I'd say the average 18" or so, with my personal biggest out of there somewhere around 8 or 9 pounds and the biggest out of there a 14 pounder caught by my brother. I bet the trout are biting there right now, I may go. Even if the fish aren't biting at juniata I can still toddle down to purdy mesa (AKA hollenbeck) and catch some nice bass and the occaisional decent bluegill. (purdy mesa's bluegill, although the state record is from there, are shrimps compared to jerry creek's.) Overall, I like fishing this time of year to be honest with you, and I like the weather right now.

;) Westsloapers... Sheesh! Spoiled... ;)

LOL!! At least you have it good... I guess this coming weekend I'll be tying up my rusty ol' panther martins and small rooster tails. I heard the stocked trout bite is still goin really good on some lakes and ponds near me so that's my last option. If not, then my only other option is to brave the elements and try for walleye.

Good luck to you TFB. Enjoy the weather... I'll count on you for more posts with spine backed warmwater fish. As for us over here, hopefully somebody will be posting pics of a bass or catfish or somethin.. Please don't get me wrong, I don't hate trout. I just don't seem too interested in em unless it's beautiful wild trout from the higher elevations. Anyway, go and catch us a 15 inch bluegill, bud. We'll be expecting that post!

[me=ePiC]stops snow dance and looks around.[/me]

Dang missed again, no snow here just drizzle. I'm with you 1eyeReD I want to catch something besides trout. I havent had the time to travel anywhere so its been stocker trout at the local ponds. I even have plans to go fly fishing mothers day, chasing those caddis. Still waiting for warmer weather, here in the springs I dont think the water temps have even rose to the mid 50's yet, or atleast not when I'm out on the lakes.

damn man i was planing to go to queens. I dont think thats a good idea now.
I hate it when plans are ruined. Yeah, it would be a good idea to stay put until conditions are prime. Especially if you're gonna spend all that money on gas.

Off for 4 straight days and look at the weather I get to deal with. I guess the weather will clear up on Sunday when I go back to work.

It would be so nice to have a high pressure system come through and sit for a few days.........I;m very tired of this "unsettled" weather pattern.

Yes the bad weather is all my fault, I will volunteer to work 7 days a week to allow everyone to have good weather. Additionally, I will give up fishing, sell every piece of gear I have and move to outer mongolia. I apologize to all for the bad weather!

Hmmm, maybe I could get everyone to pay me to pick up extra shifts? I could really make some buck that way! Any one willing to pay me to work extra?

Tonight when I'm off of work. I will build a natural earthly fire using my natural earthly coleman propane gas grill and dance around it. I shall sacrifice my mighty gutted and scaled wiper which was designated for the Homeowner God and give the wiper to the heavens through my belly which takes to the end of the universe. I shall chain smoke cigarettes and speak a language that I do not understand in hopes of WARMTH!!! To help do soI will chant a song, "Blackhole Sun, wont chu come... melt the 'snow' awayyyyyyyyy, Blackhole Sun wont chu come... wont chu come......." <-- altered the words...

But yes, it will work. And I'll drink Sunshine Wheat relentlessly to show the Gods of the Elements that I mean business!!

1eyered! What you are proposing sounds ugly, very ugly indeed! Wouldn't it just be easier and prettier to just give me cash (under the table and tax free) to stay at work?

Ok.... Now all we need is when I'm actively hopping around in the backyard performing the ceremony, for everybody to run to their backyards, wave your favorite rod in the air and howl!
