ITS SNOWING HERE B.C. WEATHERMAN SAYING WE COULD GET 2 TO 4 INCHES TDAY ,MIGHT BE CRAPPY AND WET DAY TO FISH !IMO
Its a beautiful day to not be at work so heck ya go fishing! Good luck. Find spots out of the wind if you have to.
Definitely go!!!
Drive safe and dress extra warm!
As said...try and stay out of the wind....easily an inch of WET snow with ALOT more coming.
But if today is your only day....give it a go!
Based on where you launch from, could be worth it, but it sure beats working!
Alright then, I have a pretty flexible schedule but my buddy doesn't so we picked today. I have been out in some crappy weather just didn't know if the snow would make launching possible/dangerous. I'll be careful and report back.
Thanks

a buddy heater is priceless on days like this..
If you enjoy fishing the river, then good idea....if you leave wet, cold, fishless, and grumpy, bad idea..:lol:
If your truck starts to slide down the launch don't freak out...it will stop when your tires hit the water lol.

If you don't keep it straight, the dock will stop you when the boat hits it and jackknives also! :lol: Or, a few years ago, you could end up like this guy!

was he singing "like a good neighbor,state farm is there?".. ive seen stuff like this river fishing in the early spring,but its normally the guy that has to try to launch first,and on the gas in reverse..

I actually saw a guy up at the old launch in Wickes Park. Was driving through the park just looking for anything out of the ordinary. Observed subject sitting on the hood of his pick up hollering "help me" and then saying "I seem to have lost the roadway". He was actually pretty lucky as that drops off pretty quick in there. Wrecker driver was not impressed and neither was the driver when he found himself sobering up in the old "crossbar hotel" until the morning.:help::help::irked::irked:
