Deep freeze is killing me. I feel like Joe Pesci in those Snickers ads. Can I ice fish with skagit gear?

If Iwas you I'd go.
Winter fishing in a deep freeze is some of my favorite. In the past 3 months I have gotten sick from my kids so many times I've hardly done anything. I wish I could. I'm finally getting better so maybe in a few weeks.

I hear yuh.

With last winter so mild it has seemed that we've become accustomed to nearly year round open water season. Last year I was FFing for river bass in January(!). So yes, a deep and extended winter cold period such as this can really be a downer as we wait for milder weather.

Nevertheless, as others have pointed out, there's fly tying and other home projects and if you dress approiately you can scratch the fishing bug a bit. I'm heading out tomorrow.

The river WW game is shut down but spring creeks and even mountain brookies are fishable right now. There's not much snow on the ground here in the SCPA region so mountain streams, although they're icy, are faily easy to access (I'd rather have some ice on pools than deep snow).

For those of us who are fortunate to live fairly close to mountain brookies and limestone streams, it's not that hard to find some decent trout fishing. For others some drive time makes it tougher.

I've been shoveling every day this week. there is only some much room for 6'+ feet of snow. I haven't been able to do anything else.

I don’t envy your shoveling. I was able to get out fishing Fri and Sat, and even had some dryfly action. It’s nice to be local to limestone influenced creeks.

Put your sack where your mouth is... wait, money where you sack is... wait, forget it. What I am trying to say is I am going Wednesday somewhere if you are off next week. If not, I am mostly off until 1/18, I think, so hit me up.

Winter does suck....and it's crazy cold right now.

FFing isn't really any fun with frozen lines and guides.

But if you look at the weather forecast for next week and the following week, the high temps are forecasted rise into and high 30's and into 40's some days.

Definitely doable for a winter trip or two....just hang on 'til next week!

My favorite local wild trout streams are all open and ice free. My phone says that is is -1° right now though. I'm with you though I'm ready to get back out on some water. It would take only one cast in these temps before your line would freeze in the guides.

Oh and on a side note why not try to do some ice fishing? Sure, it isn't fly fishing but we hardly ever get enough good ice around these parts for a good ice fishing season. I'd say these temps have the lakes pretty safe right now.

There is quite a bit of ice on parts of Spring Creek. And I saw ice on parts of Fishing Creek the other day also.

Even on the open areas if you fish when the air temps are really cold, you'll get ice in the guides early and often.

In the winter time when you're getting cabin fever, just put on some warm clothes and go for a walk in the great outdoors, at a local park or whatever is nearby.

You don't need to pester the fish to enjoy the outdoors.
