Headed out for the old "gotta run to the bank and grocery store" fishing blitz on Monday. Guy like me finishes those errands in ten minutes which leaves fifty minutes to play with. Enough for a quick six pack knowing fish are very predictable in these conditions.

Had more time to play on Tuesday and even brought out the waders. Fish have already been abandoning their high water spots as the flows are gradually dropping.

These little fuzzballs were crawling all over the place.

Ran into a few snakes too. Had a chance to get a nice shot of a garter snake but I got greedy and went for the grab. He escaped. I decided to not make the same attempt for this guy.

Image

Not that I'd pick these and try them but mushroom guys/gals, morels?

Nothing short of a heat wave out there but don't look now, here comes the temp crash. We'll see how the fishing holds up. I would expect a one or two day lull until the fish realize what him them.

Those are Shaggy Manes . Morels are only in the spring. Super cool though, Along with everything else I’m lookin at! I couldn’t find it , But I m pretty sure I read an article online at some point that mentioned a huge bloom of shaggy mane mushrooms that was under a highway. Apparently i5 was so big it buckled the road!!

More black than brown............now I don't remember if that means good long ice season or not.

Dog, you got the best of both worlds to stop and fish on a chore run, heck it takes me over an hour just to put the boat away. Nice fish.....

Great report. I've been meaning to get some more river fishing in as a break from the lakefront. It's also a good excuse to use the fly rods.


"The wider the rusty brown sections (or the more brown segments there are), the milder the coming winter will be. The more black there is, the more severe the winter."

Going shopping doesn't get any better than that! Way to take care of business.

I'm no expert, but those aren't Morels. Maybe shaggy parasols?

Sorry Fletch, I somehow missed your post...shaggy manes they are.
