...a reason to start getting excited.
Last evening I was shown a picture of Chickahominy. I had heard Friday that there was a crack in the ice, which means it wouldn't be long until there is open water to fish, especially coupled with the "warm" temps we are anticipating. I was planning on checking the pond this next Friday to check on the progress of the ice regression. Imagine my surprise when I look at a pic on a friend's phone which shows OPEN WATER. And I'm not talking a sliver, but what appears to be the entire south side of the reservoir being open.
Break out the Woolly Buggers, friends!!
OK, maybe some emergers and nymphs, too...
Keep an eye out here for a fishing report, as I hope to shake off the cobwebs and coyote hair from my casting arm later this week. I guess there is room in my rig for both my predator hunting gear and fishing equipment, too.
