July fishing has been good. Walleyes, northern pike, bass, and pan fish have all been on the bite. With summer weather settling in the water has warmed up and stabilized. The May Fly hatch is past us and all the little fellers are getting hungry.
Really, Spring is here at Crane Lake. The ice is out but this morning we picked up a couple of inches of snow just to remind us where we live. The water levels are rising and the fire danger has significantly been reduced. These are two good things.
The moon is setting on the last early run for some late season trout fishing. However, the sun is rising on Spring. The snow is melting and the water in the beaver ponds is flowing so the lake is not far behind.
Sometimes a good old New Year’s eve party can have serious consequences regarding how the New Year starts. I think this puts a new meaning to awaking on New Year’s day with a head that just doesn’t quite feel right.
