Dan’s Tip

Yoy can hear the roar of Henson Creek from almost any walking trail in town.

You can hear the roar of Henson Creek from almost any walking trail in town.

You have heard someone say, “If the Creek doesn’t rise..” Well the creek is rising.  Both the Lake Fork and Henson Creek have doubled in width – some days running almost clear and some days a bit murky.  It is a bit early, but spreading the run-off out over time is a good thing. We are promised that there will be plenty of water for the later run-off to keep the fish swimming. (Maybe more than plenty)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Current Fishing and Weather Conditions

It is spring in Lake City.  That means one might see a vast array of weather conditions during any day or even hour. The wind is blowing, The sun is shining, Rain is falling preceded by a low rumble of thunder, Sleet is pelting the window panes. Clouds are sailing across a blue sky. Mist surrounds the valley hiding even the near mountains. So every day is a surprise. Fishing is a challenge, but some are heading to the lake because they can’t wait any longer.

Road crews are very busy clearing away the debris brought down by our many avalanches.   Mixed in the snow and mud are every shape and size of tree, branch, twig, and bush.  One can only wonder at the force of the snow that created this havoc.
