General Info

Definitely Fall fishing weather-wise highs in the 40s and 50s, lows in the teens. Fishing has been very good despite not being able to fish the Park waters. Hopefully this will get resolved and re-opened before the season ends.

This is the last report for the season - time to chase ringnecks with the new pup.
