I have been in Pittsburg for a few days and just going out to my "home" water and visiting familiar pools, puts my busy mind at ease. I have quite a few things going on in my life at the moment, the most important of which is my wedding at the end of May. The stress of getting the plans just right can loom large on your mind after a while, but time spent on a beautiful river can help me melt the stress and look at life on a larger scale. What really means the most in life to you? I can't say that fly fishing matters most to me because it doesn't. My soon to be wife and hopefully family will continue to be the most important thing as time rolls on. But fly fishing will always be there for me when I need to decompress from a long stretch of work or think about how to get through a difficult time. It is a constant that is dependable no matter what outside influences try to change it. The woods, lakes, streams and rivers are not what make my life, they are what help me be a better man, husband and eventually father someday. For this I will be forever grateful.
So what about the fishing? Well everything is very high up here right now. Snowmelt, rainfall, river levels, you name it. I have been scouting all of the usual early season areas and we are right on track for a great spring. I started guiding a few weeks ago and right off the bat we were catching fish in the southern and middle parts of the state.
