60 degrees in January... "Let's go fishing!"

    January 30th and the weather was pushing 60 degrees and rain.  The Allegheny River had been running at 1900 CFS and on this morning was rising.  Sink tips and big ugly streamers were the ticket.  Pictured above is Steve with a nice healthy rainbow and on the left is myself with my second brown trout of the morning. 
    Today the temperature is in the 20s and falling with lake effect snow.  Glad we were able to enjoy it yesterday.  Back to tip-ups and fishing the hardwater next week I guess.  It looks like it is going to be winter again for a while.
