no runoff and the weather was great minue the wind! geez! The wind seemed like it was coming from all different directions. I fished from about 10:30 till 4:30. Fished a stretch in the park and got one good size brown, maybe 16". Went to a couple other spots but the saw the path was well beaten and decided to try a stretch i had never been on. I ended the day with 17 fish in total. Loss a huge bow, not once but twice, same fish each time. Broke me off the first time and spit the hook on the second.

Size 18-20 zebra midges. even with the wind i managed to only lose two flies, one to a tree and one to the bow. Fish seem to be holding in the deep(2-4') runs in the tailout. Saw alot of fish rising to midges in the slow deep water. Midges were everywhere, crawling all over the ice and drowning in the fishes bellies.

tight loops!!

I found the midge everywhere on the Root System as well. Nailed one decent bow about 3.30 on a #20 copper miracle nymph. No wind in the valley I was fishing however I was in a tight valley. Great day to be out fishing spring creeks!

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
