Oil price declines have taken a back seat to the virus but they're significant in their own way. Not the least of which is bringing down the price at the pump. I saw $1.76 with a member card in Newport today. So hey, driving around alone in my truck is beginning to sound like a frugal adventure. So I'm thinking a trip to the K. near Bingham is in order. I'll put all the gear in the truck just in case I can't resist. I don't usually fish this early in the year, but I'm already the tiniest bit cabin feverish. Flows are showing reasonable at early hours and most of the day with some releases later.

Yes, high today. If I read the Brookfield charts correctly, it will be getting lower throughout the day. My plan is to head up tomorrow mid-day and hope they keep the same schedule.

FWIW, today, gas in Swanville was $1.59 and diesel in Northport was $2.39 - all the free flowing streams I saw were way low for this time of year but perfect, fishing-wise.
Also, I got some bum wad I'd be willing to trade for some black marabou...
Be well!

Is that real bum wad or some from under the windshield wash from an EKO station in Canada, Just repackaged.

So yeah, I went. And the water looked very wadable. Lower than I would have expected for this time of year even with the dam. For a few good reasons and a few silly reasons, I didn't suit up and fish. I might regret it and I'm a little embarrassed to admit I drove all that way, looked at the water and then drove home. But I have learned to trust my instinct. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

I stopped at several spots, the first was the boat launch under the bridge. Three empty trailers were already parked and the 4th guy was just unhooking his boat as I pulled up. He was ready for a change from ice fishing and by the look of his gear, he was up to the task.

I passed by the roadside spot since a young mom was there with her kids having a picnic.

I ate lunch here then left town. It's such a great river.
