Winter is not going away. Temps in hi 20's and snow flurries today. This weekend looks like a warmup into the 60's followed by cool air next week.
Trout and Bass catch and release season opens this Saturday 4/14/18. Most of our small trout ponds are still ice locked, trout fishing in the Battenkill and other local rivers will produce some hookups for sure.
We are stocking our shelves for Turkey season,, ammo and calls & Decoys are in stock along with Mossberg and Winchester Shotguns.
March has been a tuff month, lotsa of snow, cold temps. NOT NICE, skiiing has been good, fishing not so much.
Ice fishing has slowed down, there is still ice on mountain ponds but navigating the deep snow has brought ice fishing to a halt.
Ralph and I got out the other day, temps 36 degrees, water temp 36-38. Water flo has been perfect. We finally got skunked, first time this winter. Temps are due to warm up this weekend, we will see.
Dagmar is stocking the shelves with Rapalas to Yamamotos, getting ready for spring, new inventory arriving dailey.
We thought winter was winding down but it is back. Snow fall was 9" with rain expected late in the week. I did get out the other day when temps were in the 50's and landed another 4lb rainbow. Winter trout fishing has been excellent, Ralph is busy tying up some of his creations that have been the key to our trout hookups this winter.
Ice fishing continues, I fished Gayle Meadow on 3/1/18 and did well on large perch jigging. The ice was about 12-13". We are starting to stock our shelves for spring fever, turkey hunting is right around the corner.
Dagmar is busy getting the fishing stuff on the shelves and she has a lot of stuff.
