Pickerel Creek This Morning.

this morning

If the weather man is correct it looks like we have just a few more days of winter like conditions.  We received about 6 inches of fresh snow over the last two days and things look a lot like December.  Augusta, Georgia sure looked pretty nice yesterday although Jordan Spieth probably wishes it was still December.  Fishing reports have been good.  We fished Saturday and had a great day catching the new little green fish in our area and then  a quick trout fish in the afternoon, which panned out as well.  Walleye reports have been decent.  If you were to ask me a month ago if we would still be on the ice I would have said no way.  Ice conditions are very good, still averaging 16 to 20 inches, but you need to be careful anywhere there is current.  We will be experiencing a warm up towards the end of the week and the long range looks to be average or above.

Pickerel Creek opened up this year on the 17th of March and it took until the 29th for our waterfowl to arrive.  The creek is teaming with mallards, golden eye, hooded mergansers, Canada geese, and even a pair of trumpeter swans.  There are not any signs of northern pike spawning yet but with warmer weather on the way it won’t be long to see the bull rushes dancing with another year of spawning taking place.

Couple of reminders: Be sure to check your passports to make sure they have not expired and Highway 105 will be under construction north and south of Pickerel Creek Camp this summer so watch for workers and drive safe.

 

Just a couple of weeks left for these good times.
