Urban sites fish … rural sites fishless. The day started out cold and the wind did not help. The cloudcover broke in the afternoon and from time to time the sun appeared.Not much going on fishwise but the urban spot produced some good roach on the nymph.The larger trout I had spotted previously was not at home. The river is still running a tad high and warmer temperatures are needed to obtain some better fishing.

Against better judgement I went fishing and it was a total washout.The river was a flooding brown mess, not a chance in the world to catch a fish but as they say hope springs eternal so I had to try.Pretty awfull weather with rain and snow mixed in, quite a change fromthose bizarre hot days we had earlier.
