    It all depends on how the spring goes. If it warms up quick and gets all the snow melt out of here quick I think we'll be alright. If it stays cold and the snow melts slowly it may be different. If we get a warm spring and the snow melts quick, the water will get high and stream dynamics will change, but that's not always a bad thing. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Fishing your hole before you get there


    It will be a good thing. That's one thing we've been lacking for the last couple of years is good snowpack in the mountains through the summer months. A lot of the smaller streams and creeks have had warmer temperatures and in some cases lethal temperatures in the summer due to a lack of snowpack in the mountains. Some of the streams I've worked on in the last couple of years have had pre spawning salmon mortality due to high water temperatures, which is a result of low snowpack or higher than normal spring/summer temperatures.
