Happy Easter all!
Opened up yesterday and the house and cabin are still here! Only extra found was a trophy mouse in a trap. He's a keeper, I'm sending off the skull and fangs to Boone & Crocket thinking I might have the new State record!
Woke up this am and took off for the hills to take a hike.... snowshoe hike. We had a skiff of snow last night but in the hills it was miles and miles of champagne powder! About 10" of fresh. The snowshoeing was awesome... fresh snow, sun, no wind and a couple of moose.
The river is in great shape and ready to float. See attached photos out front of the Guest House. The road up to Bennett still has a few snow drifts but give us guides a few days and we'll dynamite our way through to the put in. Yesterday afternoon before the snow showed up it was warm and sunny with a f ew trout out front sipping midges....... dang it's good to be back!
So.... if you're inclined to get out and wet a line........ bring your warmest clothes but have a few Hawaiian shirts along... you never know in April.
Take advantage of our Spring special...... $300. for a day trip.... $100. off our regular season pricing. Heck I'll still provide flies and lunch! '
Expect the fishing to be slow with our cold water but don't be surprised if we have a banner day..... the best dry fly fishing I've ever had on this river was in April.... Blue Wings and a snow storm...... remember that Uncle Jim??!!
Off to clean and polish up the house.... Deb and her Mom ( Mom in from England to celebrate the nuptials of her Grand daughter ) are on their way up for the weekend to help me open up and for Deb and I to celebrate our 17th year of Deb putting up with a fishing bum! Have a great Easter!
All the best, Mitch Harrison's Guest House & Guide Service
