Today was so awesome you would not have believed it unless you were actually here. Today, it was spring in the middle of winter on the prairie ocean.
I dare say that today's beautiful weather was the calm before the storm with a severe winter front known as the polar express headed our way. As a matter of fact, the first tinges of that front could be felt around four this afternoon.
Around noon I saw my fellow carp by fly addict Charlie pulling into the petro pumps and I quickly pulled along his side. I told Charlie he should be on Blue River. Charlie said, "I'm going... please join me."
Charlie's invite was so tempting, but I still owed some hours to the company store and just couldn't make it. I hope Charlie made a killin'.
However, not all was lost. Taking advantage of the bluebird sky and warm temperatures I went to Rock Creek and began the spring cleanup a little early. There is a lot of trash to clean and it will take a while, but it will get done one piece at a time.
