It's been a long winter and besides tying flies fishing has been to far in between. We were able to get out a few times for trout and the last few weeks have been able to slow strip some farm ponds. This week was the first really good warm water trip of the year. We found some warmer water and found some fish. They were eating pretty much anything shad/minnow looking and the best colors were grey and white. Things should start picking up over the next few weeks, some reports of whites starting to move around in the Ozark's so we shouldn't be too far behind, some warm windy days should start bring water temps up. If the weather cooperates I know I'll be out as much as possible.
